One of my favourite movements in art happened in the late Fifties and Sixties was op art. It was mostly dedicated to playing with optical illusions created by shape and colour. This movement came out of the works of artists like Victor Vasarely and Julian Stanczak. The experiments with discordance of figure and ground, and it’s effects on the eye were revolutionary at the time, giving the viewer a pseudorealistic experience based on design.
