Antonio Asis was born in Argentina in 1932. From 1946 to 1950, he attended the Escuela National de Belles Artes in Buenos Aires.

In 1956 he arrived in Paris and immediately befriended the Denise Rene group of artists such as Jesus Rafael SotoPol Bury, and Yaacov Agam. Asis was one of the first Argentines to arrive in Paris, and started working in his typical style of 'interference' works like the Interferences concentriques paintings and his Interferencesculptures with a metal grille.

There is a strong group of Argentinian artists (Antonio Asis, Julio Le ParcLouis Tomasello) as well as a strong group of Venezuelan artists (SotoCarlos Cruz-DiezDario Perez-FloresNarciso Debourg) who worked with the possibilities of vision, movement, and light.
