What is Op-Art?

Op art is short for 'optical art'. The Op Art movement emerged in the 1950s. It evolved from abstract/geometric elements found in Abstract Expressionism, and its artists explored the idea of deception and illusion. The Op-Art artists used color, space and form to create a visceral experience of movement and rhythm for the viewer. They often played with positive/negative space, geometric patterns, and the color gradient to alter the viewer’s depth perception.
Bridget Riley, Victor Vasarely and Jesus Rafael Soto were three of the most important op artists.
