Victor Vasarely was a Hungarian artist, born in 1906 and died in 1997. He is considered one of the pioneers of op art, an art movement characterized by the use of optics and optical illusions in works. Among his most famous works are "Zebra" (1938), a graphic work that uses lines and geometric shapes to create the illusion of movement, and "Vega-Nor" (1969), a work that uses shapes and colors to create the illusion of movement and depth. In 1950, Vasarely created his own foundation in Paris, where he exhibited his works and those of other op art artists. He continued to work and exhibit his works until his death in 1997. Vasarely had a considerable influence on modern art and his work has been exhibited in many museums around the world. His contribution to op art has also been recognized by many art critics and historians.
