Hungarian artist Victor Vasarely studied medicine at the University of Budapest and art at the Podolini-Volkmann Academy and the Bauhaus Muhely, Budapest. He moved to Paris in 1930. Committed to the purity of visual sensation and the accessibility of the art object, Vasarely employed syncopated rhythms and geometric pattern to create his optical paintings. A founding figure within the Op art movement, he was also innovative in advocating the use of computer technology in art making. Vasarely’s work has been exhibited worldwide. The Vasarely Museum Budapest was established by the artist in 1987.
