François Morellet

François Morellet was a French Conceptual sculptor, painter, and light artist, known for his geometric abstract art. Morellet’s earliest work were figurative paintings, but he quickly turned to abstraction, painting a series of lines that crisscrossed to form geometric shapes. He began to work in sculpture using neon tubes and continued to experiment with Minimalism and geometry in art.  In 1963, along with artists Julio Le Parc and Francisco Sobrino, co-founded the Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel to research new modes of artistic expression.
