Over a 70-year career, Takis has created some of the most powerful, innovative – as well as playful – works of twentieth-century art. With these, he reinvented the formats of sculpture, painting and music in relation to energy. Takis was one of the pioneers of advanced, experimental art of the 1960s and in particular, his work investigated the relation between artistic, scientific and philosophical research. While his earliest sculptures make explicit reference to ancient Greek culture, he later became an innovator in incorporating natural forces into his work, most centrally magnetism, light 3 and electricity, in sculptures and paintings as well as in actions. Similarly, he moved from figuration to work that was more closely allied to experimental abstraction.
