Victor Vasarely

I came across this artist while completing the ‘Light is colour’ Field hub. When looking at colour and the use of complementary colours in artwork this artist stood out the most for me. I also really the way his art creates optical illusions with the use of shape and colour.

‘Banya’, 1964

This piece is very interesting too look at, The geometric coloured shapes play tricks on my mind and I visualise the artwork in different ways. The use of colour in this piece is very clever as he uses complementary colours next to each other to create a visual illusion. The manufactured black on the outskirts of the piece create a strong contrast with the complementary colours.

In relation towards the ‘Light is colour’ Hub I want to try and use similar techniques to experiment with colour and shape.
