Artist Bio

Victor Vasarely was a Hungarian-French artist who was born in 1906 in Pécs, Hungary. In 1928 Vasarely enrolled in Budapest's center of Bauhaus studies, otherwise known as a private art school called Műhely. He is best known as a leader in the Op art movement, his brightly colored paintings involve geometric abstraction that present optical illusion to the viewer. Work by Viictor Vasarely can be found in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museu Nacional de Belas Artes, the Tate Gallery, and several other collections internationally.
