Alain Kirili was born in France in 1946 . He had his first solo exhibition at Sonnabend gallery in 1972. Since that time he has had numerous exhibitions including the Brooklyn Museum in 1991, the Marlborough Gallery N.Y.C in 1998, the Grenoble Museum and the Sanfrancisco Palace of Legion of Honor Fine Arts in 1999. His work is in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Modern art in New York.

He is an installation sculptor who has combined music with his sculptures in unique performance events. Many of his sculptures are in groupings with pieces of marble, painted stones, bronze and scrap iron. In the seventies he worked in filament-like forms, but changed to a style that was more robust and expressive. He likes to combine geometric and organic elements and is fascinated by contradictions.

He divides his time between New York and Paris.
