Artist Bio

Coining the term ‘conceptual art’, Sol LeWitt is considered one of the most influential artists of his time. From 1968 to 2007, Lewitt created 1200 wall drawings, reducing his art-making process to a bare vocabulary of lines, curves, geometric shapes and primary colours. These works were distinctive for their method which began with a set of instructions or a simple diagram, executed by people other than the artist at different times and places. LeWitt once wrote ‘ideas can be works of art’ giving greater importance to the idea behind his work rather than it’s execution.
