He pioneered the visually disturbing effects that were later called Op Art. His paintings were characterized by their repeated geometric forms and interacting vibrant colors which created a visually disorientating effect of movement. Forms from nature were transposed into purely abstract elements in his paintings. During the 1950’s, Vasarely wrote a series of manifestos on the use of optical phenomena for artistic purposes. He also experimented with Kinetic Art.
