Jorrit Tornquist

Jorrit Tornquist was born in Graz, Austria, on March 26th, 1938. In 1964 he decided to settle in Italy where he acquired citizenship in 1992. Operating within the belief that color is an electromagnetic frequency that combines with the background noise of a place and, as such, is captured by our senses and interferes with our mood, he has combined technology with sensitivity, developing a theory of color of his own, in which the structural-chromatic value combines with the sensitive-affective value. His exhibition activity, as a color artist-scientist, is conspicuous; he has been included in more than 300 exhibitions. His works have been acquired by several museums in Europe, Japan, South and North America.
