      //Victor Vasarely//



      • Known as: French Hungarian-born artist, father of Op-art
      • Born: 9 April 1906, Pécs, Hungary
      • Date of death: 15 March 1997, Paris, France



    • Victor Vasarely is widely considered the father of Op Art. That is the case because of his experimentation with optical effects in the 1940s and 50s. He was influenced by the innovative use of color in Bauhaus art.

      He was instrumental not only in provoking a school of thought based on the relationship between art and science, but in creating some of the most striking geometric paintings in the history of late Modernism.

      First coming to prominence in Europe, Vasarely's work was included in the groundbreaking 1965 exhibition The Responsive Eye at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In the years following this exhibit, Vasarely rose to international attention, opening art and culture to an imagery shaped by digital applications and creating, with his optical icons, a new direction for art.

      There are works of Vasarely in Paris (public monuments), Buffalo NY, Caracas (a mural honouring Malevich), Jerualem and New York (M of MA, Guggenheim).
