Louisiana poster featuring the work, Tridim TT , (1969), by Hungarian artist, Victor Vasarely (1906-1997), released in conjunction with Louisiana's 2016 exhibition of Op Art, kinetic art, an abstract art form that makes use of optical phenomena , which must find its meaning in the viewer's own sensory apparatus - perceptual art. Op Art also had enormous impact in fashion, design and advertising, and Victor Vasarely is seen as absolutely central to the movement.
Op Art - Optical Art - broke out in Europe in the mid-1950s with its own geometric aesthetic as an extension of constructivist and concrete art. As kinetic art, it aims to influence our senses with visual disturbances and works in motion (kinetic comes from the Greek, kinetikos - about movement).
Vasarely refined the optical effects in black and white to continue the work with the illusions in color. The Hungarian-born, but working in Paris artist, not only became a figurehead in Op Art's formal approach, but also for the ideal of democratization of art, of the viewer as the protagonist of the work.
