98 years since the birth of "El Maestro del Color"

Carlos Cruz-Diez

On a day like today, 98 years ago, Carlos Cruz-Diez (Caracas, 1923-Paris, 2019) was born, a color theorist and one of the most influential artists of his generation whose research expanded the perceptual notions of the chromatic phenomenon in art. The impact of his invaluable contribution will last.


Today the teams of the Cruz-Diez Foundation and the Cruz-Diez workshops join the family, to remember the immense joy and passion that animated his life. Happy Birthday Maestro!
