Victor Vasarely was a French painter of Hungarian origin. Influenced by Bauhaus design principles, Kandinsky’s and Malevich’s art and Constructivism, he is known as the “father” and founder of the Op art movement, which artworks create compelling illusions of spatial depth. According to his opinion it was very important for art to completely leave the figuration so it would find a “new world of geometry, full of sun and color”. He achieved illusionistic moments in his artworks, by confronting two perspective systems. The combination of bold dark hues and lighter tints and tones adds to the feeling of volume within the shape in the center. Comprised of bold hues and a complex composition, our senses are fully engaged when viewing this work.
