Yaacov Agam signed and numbered limited edition lithographs:
Israeli artist Yaacov Agam is most famous for his pioneering of kinetic sculpture and abstract optical prints which give the viewer the illusion of movement. Intricate blocks of color and line form patterns which change and move depending upon the viewer's location and reference point. A color theorist as well, Agam's use of contrasting primary color add give his prints striking impact, while maintaining a surprisingly serene, almost hypnotic effect.
