Antoni Tapies was a Spanish artist known for his mixed-media paintings that incorporated marble dust, found objects, and resin as seen in his seminal work Grey and Green Painting (1957). Social themes run throughout his highly textured and tactile paintings, which were influenced by his experience of the politics and environment of the wartime and the postwar state of the Spanish government.

Tàpies began to study law in Barcelona in 1944 but decided instead within two years to devote himself exclusively to art.
