Optical Art

Victor Vasarelyย 




Considered one of the leaders of the op art movement Vasarely started experimenting in the 1930s with perspectives, textural effects, shadowsย  and light to render optical illusions. Supernovae is a typical example of Optical Art, realised just using black and white and geometrical shapes to obtain the illusion of a tridimensional effect on the canvas.
Ambiguous Structure n.92

Jean-Pierre Yvaral

Son of Victor Vasarely, Jean-Pierre followed in the footstepsย of his father and continued with the experimentation with optical effects with paintings. Withย Ambiguous Structure n. 92ย he achieved extraordinary optical 3D effect using contrasting colours and geometrical shapes with red and purple tones



Bridget Riley

For many years Riley painted just using black and white, while in later years of her career she started using colours and this painting exhibited at Tate Modern, Nataraja, is a marvellous rendition of the concepts of opart in combination with a myriad of colours, inspired by Indian traditional art.
