Victor Vasarely (1906–1997) was a Hungarian–French artist, widely regarded as the father of ‘Op-Art’, a style that was also made prominent by artists such as Bridget Riley and Maurits Escher. While Victor Vasarely’s earlier art prints were concerned more with colour theory, during the 1950’s and 1960’s his work became more focused on the optical potential of the two-dimensional surface. During the 1960’s and 70’s his optical images became part of the popular culture, having a deep impact on architecture, computer science, fashion, and the way we now look at things in general. For example, he was the one who designed the logo for the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Even though he achieved great fame during his career, he insisted on making his art accessible to everyone. His motto was “Art for all” and at artrepublic, you can enjoy his accessible art prints.
