Isamu Noguchi, born in Los Angeles, was one the the most acclaimed sculptor of the 20th Century. I had the pleassure to see his work at his museum and former studio yesterday with my friend Iside, located in Long Island City.
He created the most amazing scultures made out of the most diverse materials: bronze, stainless steel, marble, cast iron, basalt, granite, water and more.
His pieces have a modern and abstract air infused with lyrical expressions and a mystery aura. He did many collaborations in the world of art including dance/coreographers Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, composer John Cage, and architect Louis Kahn. He created playgrounds, furniture, lightning designs and public works woldwide.
