Max Bill was a Swiss artist and designer who founded the Concrete Art movement. He is perhaps best known for his interpretations of Constructivism through structured paintings and spherical sculptures, bringing studied geometry and mathematics into his art practice. “I am of the opinion that it is possible to develop an art largely on the basis of mathematical thinking,” Bill had once written. A preeminent graphic designer and typographer, he was born on December 22, 1908 in Winterthur, Switzerland and studied at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zürich from 1924–1927, then with Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee at the Bauhaus school in Dessau for the next two years. He was later a co-founder of the Ulm School of Arts and Crafts, where he was the head of the architecture and product design departments during the 1950s, and served on the Swiss Parliament from 1967 to 1971. Bill died on December 9, 1994 in Berlin at the age of 85.
