Victor Vasarely

(Gy?z? Vásárhelyi, 1906 – 1997) father of Op Art

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.
