Alexander Calder is an American sculptor who began creating kinetic sculptures at the age of 11. Although he graduated with an engineering degree, he eventually pursued art and became known for his kinetic sculptures in the early 1930’s. As you may notice, his art was influenced by Piet Mondrian. Artist Marcel Duchamp dubbed his objects as “mobiles” which became his signature work.
He led a fascinating life including working in the circus as a sketch artist, living and studying in Paris, and establishing his place as one of his prolific artistic career of The twentieth century. Learn more here: http://www.calder.org/
