Gyula Kosice
20th century
(Kosice, Czechoslovakia (Slovakia), 1924 - 2016, Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Born 1924, Kosice, Czech-Hungarian frontier ; active 1928–57, Buenos Aires, Argentina; 1957–62, Paris; 1962–2016, Buenos Aires. Gyula Kosice was one of the founding members of the Arte Concreto [Concrete Art] movement in Argentina during the late 1940s. Members of this movement believed in the revolutionary power of geometrically abstract, or concrete art, which was not a representation or abstraction of other objects, but simply pure human invention for its own sake. Concrete art, with its rigid geometry and bright colors, influenced many other forms of geometric abstraction in Argentina. In the early 1960s, Kosice began to move away from the strictest principles of concrete art by producing plexiglass works that incorporated elements of water and light. During the 1970s, he also sent a proposal to NASA for a space-age city composed of plastic hemispheres that would float in the clouds on a layer of water vapor.
