Max Bill is one of the most important proponents of Concrete Art. Influenced by his apprenticeship at the Bauhaus in Dessau, he developed an artistic oeuvre based on mathematical principles, which he was also able to substantiate with theory. In his sculptural work, often linked to architecture and painting, Bill focused on a few key themes such as column, prism and ball. He was invited several times to the Documenta in Kassel, Germany, and became famous for the very distinctive works he created as an artist as well as an architect.
