Bernard Aubertin (Fontenay-aux-Roses, FR, 1934 – Reutlingen, DE, 2015)
Initially having studied decorative art, Bernard Aubertin meets Yves Klein in 1957, who encourages him to move towards Abstract Art. The following year he begins the creation of his renowned monochrome paintings. His research focuses primarily on the colour red, understood as energy animating his canvases with nails, wire and fire. Since 1962, Aubertin is one of the founding members of the international movement ZERO, together with Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Piero Manzoni.
