About the Artist - Alexander Calder

Alexander Calder (1898-1976) was a renowned American sculptor and one of the pioneers of kinetic art. He was born into a family of artists and studied engineering before pursuing a career in art. Calder is best known for his invention of the mobile, a type of sculpture that moves in response to air currents, creating a dynamic and ever-changing visual experience. His mobiles are celebrated for their balance, grace, and playfulness.

 

One of the most interesting aspects of Calder's life is his deep affinity for the circus. He created a miniature circus with wire sculptures and performed puppet shows for friends and family, even developing intricate mechanisms to make the circus figures move. This early fascination with movement and balance strongly influenced his later kinetic art.

 

Calder's work is characterized by its abstraction, use of primary colors, and geometric shapes. He is considered a key figure in the development of modern sculpture, and his innovative approach to art continues to inspire generations of artists.
