Vasarely, Victor (French painter and printmaker, 1906 or 1908-1997)

Note: A pioneer of Op Art, Vasarely trained with Moholy-Nagy in Budapest and worked as a graphic designer in Paris throughout the 1930s. He began developing his rigourous style of geometric abstraction ca. 1947, influenced by the work of Mondrian and Malevich. Eventually, his works, comprised of geometrical shapes on a grid, began to achieve an optical effect. His designs were mass-produced throughout the 60s, and he opened a museum of his work near Avignon, ca. 1970. French painter and printmaker.
