Lives and works in Cachan, France


Considered as a pioneering figure in association to Op Art and Kinetic Art, Julio le Parc specializes in large sculptural installations and paintings, in which both genres epitomize the artist’s manipulation of rich, often primary, colors and geometric shapes to construct illusionary spaces. These spaces subsequently guide the audiences’ viewpoint across his works, representing and directing ‘movement’ – a concept hallmark to le Parc and is continually experimented with by the artist.


Beginning as one of the leading figures of the Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel (GRAV) since the 1960s, Julio le Parc received in 1966 the Grand Prize in Painting at the 33rd Biennale di Venezia, Venice. Le Parc has produced countless celebrated artwork series, including Sphere Rogue, Modulations, Mobile, Alchimie, La Longue Marche, and more. Le Parc’s recent exhibitions include: “Julio le Parc”, Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, Germany, 2022; “Julio le Parc: Kuboa”, Tabakalera, Spain, 2020; “Julio le Parc: Colour and Colours”, Perrotin Gallery, New York, 2020; “Julio Le Parc & Osgemeos”, Fortes D’aloia & Gabriel, Brazil, 2019; “Julio le Parc: Light - Mirror”, Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong, 2019. 


Le Parc’s works are also collected worldwide including in Havana, Düsseldorf, Montevideo, Caracas, Asunción, Mexico City, Stockholm, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, Santiago de Chile, and Porto Alegre.
