James Rizzi - Pop artist of a unique kind

James Rizzi was one of the most popular artists of all time during his lifetime, a true “pop artist.” He became known for the invention of 3D paper sculpture and 3D magnetic images, which have been inextricably linked with his name since the 1970s. But he has also made a reputation for himself as a painter of unique acrylic pieces and has left his mark on a wide variety of everyday objects.

His unmistakable personal style, humor and optimism, inherent in all his works, are loved by millions of fans around the world.

Rizzi lived and worked in his studio loft in New York’s SoHo neighborhood until his death on December 26th, 2011.
