German-born Icelandic artist Dieter Roth worked in a variety of media, but he was best known for his books, sculptures, and installations. He also worked in drawing and painting. Roth was also known as Dieter Rot and Diter Rot. A versatile artist, he followed the Concrete, Fluxus, Op, and Maximalism art movements. He didn’t, however, define himself by any one particular genre. He worked extensively in Iceland during his early career, which meant he was not influenced by the European Modernist movements. As such, his work has a unique aesthetic.
