Victor Vasarely is considered to be the grandfather of the Op Art movement. Op Art, short for optical, focuses on creating illusions of spatial depth (making a flat surface look three dimensional). With the right combination of colors and lines, artists like Victor Vasarely have created the illusion of depth and movement in their artworks.
To create your own work of Op Art, you will need the following materials:
- Paper, any size
- Markers, colored pencils, crayons or oil pastels
Using your pencil, lightly draw one to four shapes on your paper. You may do more if desired, a minimum of two is recommended.
