Victor Vasarely (1906-1997) is considered the father of “optical art”. These are abstract creations, based on the illusion of depth and movement, thanks to a very precise work on geometry and human perception. He made abstraction in art playful and joyful.
I have had an intimate connection with his work since I was a child, when his works were very present in the public space. His radicality, fully assumed for the simple visual combinatorics, gives me the confidence to explore forms of expression that are a priori cold and mechanical, but which carry poetry and life, such as kaleidoscopes for example.
