Jesús Rafael Soto (1923–2005) – was a visual artist from Venezuela who resided and worked in France. He became recognized for his achievements in kinetic art and op art. He, personally, didn’t identify with either current, however he used movement and illusion in his art. He believed, however, that his works comprised a study of relations that come about in the world, rather than simply the creation of aesthetic impressions through the manipulation of the senses.
