Panagiotis Vassilakis (Takis) was born in 1925 in Athens is especially known for his kinetic works, that combine form, sound, and movement.
An autodidact artist, painter and sculptor, Takis joined the Greek Resistance in WWII during the German occupation, and then the civil war which followed. In 1954, Takis left Greece and moved to France, where he decided to live in Paris.
Takis’ work was influenced by the invention of radar and by his use of magnetism in his work after 1958, which he used to create invisible forces operating within his work to create a mysterious atmosphere.
