Victor Vasarely

Victor Vasarely, born Vásárhelyi Győző (9 April 1906 – 15 March 1997) was a Hungarian-French artist whose work is generally seen as aligned with optical art. He was born in Pécs, Hungary. In 1925 he took up medical studies at Budapest University but in 1927 he abandoned medicine to learn traditional academic painting at the private Podolini-Volkmann Academy. Vasarely left Hungary and settled in Paris in 1930, where he worked and died in 1997.

His work entitled Zebra, created in the 1930s, is considered by some to be one of the earliest examples of optical art.
