Biography

Jean Tinguely is a Swiss sculptor and experimental artist, noted for his machinelike kinetic sculptures that destroyed themselves in the course of their operation. He was an avatar of the post-World War II Paris art scene and part of a generation that rejected a purely esthetic notion of art and used materials that were culled from and represented the urban or industrial world.

Also a painter, he drew and designed stage sets, and was best known for what some critics called kinetic sculptures, large projects that united radios, wheels, motors and welded girders into statements that sometimes mocked consumer society and on occasion destroyed themselves.
