Victor Vasarely

Victor Vasarely (1906-1997), born Vásárhelyi Gyozo in Pécs, Hungary, was a Hungarian-French artist known as the founder of the Op Art movement.  He studied at the Hungarian branch of the Bauhaus (Muhely) in Budapest in the late 1920s, and his earlier work concentrated on color theory.  During the 1950s and 1960s, he focused on the optical potential of the two-dimensional surface.The artist used an abstract method of painting known as Kineticism. His paintings and sculptures incorporate geometric shapes and colorful graphics to create illusions of spatial depth on two-dimensional surfaces. After settling in Paris in 1930, he worked as a graphic artist and developed his signature abstract aesthetic.
