Vasarely, Victor

Born in Pécs, Hungary in 1906, Victor Vasarely moved to Paris in 1930.

Known as the father of the Optical Art Movement (Op Art), his research on the interaction of colors combined with the juxtaposition of forms; positive and negative, has produced remarkable vibrant works. A real Star of the ‘ 70s, Victor Vasarely has left us a body of more than 10,000 works. Two museums are devoted to him. The first one in Gordes (South of the France) and the second in Pécs in Hungary, his home town. Victor Vasarely died in Paris in 1997.

The Centre Pompidou (Paris) will present the first retrospective of his work, from February 6 to May 6, 2019.
