Art Tower Gallery manages to surprise and delight with its innovative and contemporary art scene. An unique exhibition opened in Art Tower Gallery on May 29.

National artist Babek Agayev presented his kinetic sculptures to Baku audience.

The exposition "Mechanization" aroused great interest among the gallery visitors who literally filled the author with questions about how he creates his works.

His contemporary art works surprised  art lovers with its originality.

The artist uses screws, bolts other details to create his kinetic sculptures.

What is kinetic art? Kinetic art is art from any medium that contains movement perceivable by the viewer or depends on motion for its effect.

Canvas paintings that extend the viewer's perspective of the artwork and incorporate multidimensional movement are the earliest examples of kinetic art.

Although Kinetic art has been around since the early 20th century it did not become a modern art form until a few artists, including Naum Gabo and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy began to use electric machinery in their sculptures. 

The exhibition will last until June 2.
