Portrait of the artist Victor Vasarely1906-1997, founder and chief representative of Op Art

With its colour and shape matches of the visual conception of space, the Hungary-born Victor Vasarely dominated the art scene of the 70s and 80s.

Victor Vasarely created a completely new art form, the op art (optical art) with subtle space suggestions and playing with geometric shapes. In a unique way, he combined vigorous shape and colour, always astonishing visual effects. The aim of Vasarely is to integrate the art into everyday life, and to make it accessible to everyone’s part of life.

During his studies at the so-called "Budapest Bauhaus" Vasarely became aware of the geometric shapes, Klee and Kandinsky had taught the Bauhaus masters. After the end of the Second World War Vasarely was fascinated by the pictorial language of Tachisme short period of time, soon he returned back to geometric abstraction.

Vasarely's ingenious way of suggestion of space, using squares, diamonds, ellipses, trapezoids and stripe effects based on the idea of form and colour is not considered separately, but as a unit, as a "unité plastique". He found out that the quiet abstract compositions could be translated into vibrant and colourful patterns when repeated several times, the individual geometric elements, thereby turning each to some degree or reflected. A high degree of uniformity distinguishes this work as well as a brilliant visual effect.

His designs are very popular and found in various areas, from the architecture to the fabric design, application.
