- Vasarely Victor (1906-1997)
Victor Vasarely is a Hungarian-French artist widely recognized as the leader of the Op art movement. Op art is considered as geometric abstract art playing with optical illusion. The artist creates illusions of spatial depth with geometric shapes and colorful graphics.
When Vasarely first moved to Paris in 1930, he worked as a graphic artist and as a creative consultant. His early graphic work entitled "Zebras" is considered by some to be one of the earliest examples of Op art. In 1976, president Pompidou inaugurated the Vasarely Foundation in Aix-en-Provence. More recently, the Centre Pompidou in Paris organized a retrospective of the artist. His work is present in the permanent collection of numerous museums worldwide including the Tate Gallery in London and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
