Artist Bio

Max Bill was an architect, painter, industrial designer, and graphic designer born in 1908 in Winterthur, Switzerland. Bill first trained as a silversmith at the Zurich School of Applied Art from 1924 to 1927 until he went on to study at the Bauhaus from 1927 to 1929. Max Bill is best known for his concrete art methods, which center on geometric abstraction, that sought to present the viewers with a visual representation of the new sciences that were emerging in the early 20th century. Max Bill has work in the permanent collections of the Modern Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and several others.
