Victor Vasarely is considered the leader of Op Art (opticokinetic art) a mathematically themed form of abstract art which developed in the early 1960s with an aim to stimulating the eye through a radical use of shapes and colours. Vasarely’s innovations in optical illusion and kinetic art have inspired many contemporary artists.

“The Absolute Eye” refers to Vasarely’s ability to see the world through a prism, translating shapes and forms into a set of basic “art elements”, which he captured and then used to convey his messages through his stunning images. As a result we too see in his works these universal elements and can easily identify with them.
