Op Art – Victor Vasarely

The “grandfather” of the op art movement, Victor Vasarely (1906-1997), was a french-hungarian artist. After having studied medicine he was enroled on the art school Műhely (translation: Workshop) in Budapest. The school was the center of the Bauhaus studies, but concentrated on graphic design and typographical design.

In 1930 Vasarely moved to Paris and worked as a graphic designer and started making artwork with optical illusion – he used geometrical forms and very few colors. The Op-art was born. His artwork “Zebra” is known as the earliest Op-Art work.

We at Deerstedt love the Op-Art period and think that it is a perfect match with the space age era. We were happy to find two cool original Victor Vaserely posters and will be using them as display for the cool atomic and space age items in our shop.
