Gyula Kosice


Gyula Kosice

Gyula Kosice, born Fernando Fallik (April 26, 1924) in Košice (Slovakia) is an Argentine naturalized sculptor, plastic artist, theoretician and poet, one of the most important figures in kinetic and luminal art and luminance vanguard.

He used his natal city name as artist name. He was one of the precursors of abstract and non-figurative art in Latin America. He used, for the first time in international art scene, water and neon gas as part of an artwork. Light and movement are also present in his works.

He has made monumental sculptures, hydrospatial walks, hydrowalls, etc. He made more than 40 personal and 500 collective exhibitions all over the world. Kosice keeps making art pieces and has transformed his workshop into a museum.
