Carel Balth (born November 25, 1939) is a Dutch artist and curator.[1]

Balth was born in Rotterdam. His work is characterised by the innovative use of new media, where a synthesis of light, motion and space occupies a central position and where new means of perception are investigated.[2] Balth uses a wide array of tools to get to the core of human perception and consistently utilises unconventional means and materials, from vinyl to Plexiglas to deliberately pixilated images. Important influences in his work are Mondriaan and Lucio Fontana.


His work can be found in, among others, the following museums:
