The respected leader of the Op Art movement, Victor Vasarely (1908 – 1997) is universally acknowledged as one of the 20th century’s artistic geniuses. Influenced by Constructivism, Cubism and Surrealism, the Hungarian-born Vasarely created an artistic language that transformed nature into geometric shapes and vibrating, adjacent colors. Filled with the optical illusion of movement, his works were inspired by numerous scientific fields. Vasarely’s art was widely reproduced in the 1960s, and is still featured in the contemporary collections of almost every major art museum worldwide.
Also known as silk screening, serigraphy is a process by which multiple layers of ink are manually pressed through fine screens, resulting in an art print that resembles a painting on paper.
