Antonio Asis

BIOGRAPHY

Antonio Asis was born in 1932 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Asis studied at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, obtaining his doctorate in 1950. Upon his arrival to Paris in 1956, Asis met and worked closely with such artists as Agam, Soto, Schaeffer, and Vasarely and began to center his art on a two-part kinetic focus. Asis began to concern himself with the exploration on the relationship between colors in order to obtain a form of optical mélange and kinetic vibration in his work. While interested in vibrant harmonies, Asis has also explored the possibilities of dominant monochramy, and has interested himself in the tactile problem between geometrical elements such as spheres and spirals over a canvas, as well as in space.
