Victor Vasarely (Pécs, Hungary, 9 April 1906 – 15 March 1997), was a Hungarian–French artist and widely accepted as the promoter of the Op art movement. Although he started medicine studies, he soon became interested in Abstract Art. Mondrian and Malevich were two of the artists that he most admired. He moved into Paris at the beginning of the 1930s and started to develop his characteristic style of geometric compositions with evident optical effects.
