Born in Rishon LeZion, Israel to a religious family, Agam trained at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, before moving to Zrich and then to Paris, where he settled. His first solo exhibition was at the Galerie Graven in 1953, and in 1955 he established himself as one of the leading pioneers of kinetic art at the Le Mouvement exhibition at the Galerie Denise Ren, alongside such artists as Pol Bury, Alexander Calder and Jean Tinguely. Agams work is usually abstract, kinetic art, with movement, viewer participation and frequent use of light and sound. His best known pieces include Double Metamorphosis III (1965), Visual Music Orchestration (1989) and fountains at the La Dfense district in Paris (1975) and in Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv (1986). He is also known for a type of print known as an Agamograph, which uses lenticular printing to present radically different images, depending on the angle from which it is viewed. The lenticular technique was executed in large scale in the Complex Vision (1969) which adorns the facade of the Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. In 1996 Agam was awarded the Jan Amos Comenius Medal by UNESCO for the Agam Method for visual education of young children.
