Tribute to Antoni Tapies

The Catalan painter Antoni Tàpies died in february 2012. He had a major influence over many contemporary artists.
When he was asked if he considered himself as a painter or rather as a sculptor, he answered that he was a poet, and that his works were not only art objects, but also magic ones.
During this short interview from 1994 (in French, sorry!!), he gives us with a few simple words the most important keys for the reading of his artistic message.
