František Kyncl was born in 1934 in Pardubice. In 1968 he left Czechoslovakia. He has lived in Düsseldorf since 1969, where he studied at the local Academy of Fine Arts. Already during his studies, he became part of the Düsseldorf art scene, which at that time was one of the most radical art movements not only in Germany. He meets artists Günther Uecker, Norbert Krick and Joseph Beuys. He exhibits in important institutions, such as the Kunstverein in Düsseldorf or the now legendary Hans Mayer Gallery. He died in 2011 in Düsseldorf.

František Kyncl's artistic work reflects the dispute between rationalism and intuition, between order and chance, simply between modern rational thinking and postmodern doubts, which was typical of the second half of the 20th century. Influenced by constructivism and the German group Zero, Kyncl began assembling in the 1970s from skewers, later bamboo sticks, three-dimensional objects governed by geometric shapes such as triangles, squares and circles, and organic growth in all directions. Fragile objects have been created, in the form of grids, nets, sometimes even cobwebs, which refract and reflect light, making it part of these objects. Kyncl calls them Spatial Structures and understands them as a picture of society: "When they multiply and grow, it's something of a picture of society and how people treat each other." Since the late 1980s, he has focused mainly on drawing that leaves geometric forms, it becomes more expressive and figurative elements appear in it.
