Yaacov Agam (Hebrew: יעקב אגם (b. 1928) is an Israeli sculptor and experimental artist best known for his contributions to optical and kinetic art. In 1964, Agam wrote his artistic credo, unchanged since then. “My intention was to create a work of art which would transcend the visible, which cannot be perceived except in stages, with the understanding that it is a partial revelation and not the perpetuation of the existing. My aim is to show what can be seen within the limits of possibility which exists in the midst of coming into being.” Agam is the highest-selling Israeli artist. In a Sotheby's New York sale in November 2009, when his “4 Themes Contrepoint” was sold for $326,500, he said: “This does not amaze me ... My prices will go up, in keeping with the history I made in the art world.” A year later, his “Growth”, an outsize kinetic painting done in oil on a wood panel, which was shown at the 1980 retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, estimated at $150,000 to $250,000, sold for the record-breaking sum of $698,000.
