Yaacov Agam (b. 1928) is an Israeli sculptor who is considered one of the founders of Kinetic Art and was active in the Op Art Movement. He was born in Rishon LeZion, Palestine (now Israel) and studied in Jerusalem, Zurich, and Paris. In 1951, the artist moved to Paris, France, where he currently lives and works. His abstract style is a combination of formalism and mysticism, borrowing from the Kabbalah. He is known for his lenticular prints, or Agamographs, and his kinetic sculptures that incorporate viewer participation.
