Biography

François Morellet
François Morellet is a french artist, painter, sculptor, and printmaker, considered as one of the most importants artists of the Geometrical Abstraction of the second XXth century, and a precursor of Minimalism mouvement. He began as a figurative painter before specialising into Abstraction. Until 1960, Morellet establishes the various systems of arrangement of the forms he uses (superposition, fragmentation, juxtaposition, interference) by creating in particular his first «frame», a network of parallel black lines superimposed in a given order. He participates in different mouvements about Kinetic art like the GRAV, or Nouvelle Tendance
In 1963, as Dan Flavin, he begans to create works with neon tubes.
