Milton Becerra is a Venezuelan artist who graduated from the Cristóbal Rojas School of Arts (1972) under the Jesús Soto promotion. From 1973 to 1980 Milton Becerra was assistant-partner in the workshops of the renowned masters Carlos Cruz-Díez and Jesús Soto. He studied art trends such as Concrete, Neo, Kinetic, Generative and "Op-art". In 1973 he opened his first solo exhibition "Vibro-hexagonal Volume" that included a sound atmosphere presented at the Ateneo de Caracas, that won him the prize of the Third National Exhibition of Young Artists.

He applies this knowledge to the development of irregular shapes called Hexagon Geometry or "Hexagonometry", based on the arrangement of different modules in space based on Kasimir Malevich's "White Cube" theory, and Ludwig Wittgenstein's "Tractatus logico-philosophicus" concepts that investigates colors, their behavior in space and the division of forms through color ranges. In the 70s Becerra pioneered the “Land Art" in Venezuela Meteorite Ibirapuera Park, XVIII Biennial of São Paulo, Brazil (1985).Three years later Milton Becerra presented at the Caracas Museum of Contemporary Art his work "Programmed Modules", where he expressed his concerns towards land intervention by photography. Milton Becerra is considered one of the pioneers of Land Art in Venezuela.
