Renowned Greek sculptor Takis passes at the age of 94Takis' works can be found in numerous private and public collections throughout the world, such as the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the MOMA in New York, the Tate Gallery in London and others, as well as many public locations in Paris

Greek sculptor Takis died on Friday, the Takis Foundation announced in a post on its website, according to ANA.

Panagiotis Vassilakis (Takis) was born in 1925 in Athens is especially known for his kinetic works, that combine form, sound, and movement.

An autodidact artist, painter and sculptor, Takis joined the Greek Resistance in WWII during the German occupation, and then the civil war which followed. In 1954, Takis left Greece and moved to France, where he decided to live in Paris.

Takis' work was influenced by the invention of radar and by his use of magnetism in his work after 1958, which he used to create invisible forces operating within his work to create a mysterious atmosphere.
