Jean Tinguely

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

Jean Tinguely was a Swiss sculptor and painter who was most well known for his creations of kinetic art, known technically as meta-mechanics, in the grand Dada tradition. Jean Tinguely’s basic purpose for his art is to lampoon the unconscious over-creation of material items in modern industry. Jean Tinguely’s best known work was Homage to New York, which he designed to destroy itself.
 
« To me art is a form of manifest revolt, total and complete. »
Jean Tinguely
However, it did not completely self-destruct in its exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. A later work,Study for an End of the World No. 2, was successful in its self-destruction when shown for an audience in the desert near Las Vegas.
 
« One has complexes. One has the art complex. One goes to the School of Fine Arts and catches the complexes. »
Jean Tinguely


Some of his more well known public works include Chaos I, in Columbus Indiana; the Tinguely Fountain in Basel; the Jo Siffert Fountain in Fribourg, Switzerland; La Cascade, a sculpture in Charlotte, North Carolina; and a number of other metamatic generative sculptures made in the 1950s. (Artist website)

What is pop-art?

What is pop-art?

Refers to an art movement that began in Britain in 1955 and late 1950s in the U.S. It challenged fine arts tradition by including popular culture imagery such as news and advertising. Pop art sometimes isolates and removes a material from its context and combines it with another unrelated material. This concept refers much to the attitudes that resulted in it and not on the art itself. Pop art employs comic books, advertising and other mass culture aspects. It is interpreted to have come as a reaction to abstract expressionism dominant ideas.
