Victor Vasarely Op Art Master Opens
Date(s) - 12/01/18
The world-renowned father of the Op Art movement, Victor Vasarely created three-dimensional experiences via two-dimensional artworks featuring bold colors and geometric shapes. With an “art for all” motto, Vasarely advocated for democratizing art by producing multiples and screen-prints and by integrating art into architecture and public spaces. His innovative use of optical illusions became popular in the 1960s and 70s, when Op Art permeated everyday life through design, advertisements, and architecture. Victor Vasarely: Op Art Master, from the collection of Herakleidon Museum in Athens, Greece, and organized by PAN Art Connections, Inc., comprises more than 150 Vasarely serigraphs, lithographs, gouache paintings, and drawings. Vasarely’s explorations of visual perception and spatial relationships are a source of inspiration for those interested in art, computer programming, architecture, and more.
