Agam (Yaakov Gipstein) was born in 1928 to an Orthodox family in Rishon Lezion in the coastal plain south of Tel Aviv, then a small, semi-rural settlement. His father, Rabbi Yehoshua Gipstein--who devoted his life to Jewish religious learning, meditation, and fasting--refused to register his son in a school, because no place in a religious school was available. Agam began painting as a self-taught teenager. In 1946, he moved to Jerusalem and studied for about two years at the Bezalel Academy of Art. Following the advice of his teacher, the painter Mordecai Ardon,

Agam left Bezalel in 1949 and went to Zurich. The stay in Zurich, although of short duration, constitutes a phase of crucial importance in the formation of his style as well as in that of his artistic theory. For it was in Zurich that the young Agam met three men who left their mark on his art and thought for many years to come. Yaacov Agam is one of the very few living Israeli artists who have attained international status (he is the only Israeli artist included in H. H. Arnason's voluminous "History of Modern Art" and in the recent "Dictionary of Art and Artists," edited by Sir David Piper). As early as the mid-1950s, Agam was considered one of the most important artists of the post-World War II period and a leading pioneer of optic and kinetic art. He is still internationally acknowledged as a major contemporary artist.

A Pioneer of KINETIC ART, Agam moves far beyond representing images in their strictly concrete form, diffracting physicality into sharp sound-bytes of line and color. His works are meant to be approached from all kinds of different angles - literally and figuratively...as you walk past an Agam piece, your changing perspective causes the image to shift and change. There is so much more than meets the Eye! Moving far beyond the tradition of representing the Human Story with a strictly human face, Agam diffracts physicality into sharp sound-bytes of line and color. His works are meant to be approached from all kinds of different angles. His work is amazing and entrancing.
