A Hungarian-born French artist, Vasarely is one of the leading international pioneers of op-art. His artwork was composed of intricate and precise intersections of line and contrasting color that created spatial illusion and depth. He became part of a transatlantic exchange between European and Venezuelan artists through his involvement in Carlos Raúl Villanueva’s project to renovate the Ciudad Universitaria de Caracas (1944-70) into an architectural complex that transformed the campus into a symbol of modernity and urban planning. Vasarely joined a group of European, American, and Venezuelan artists, including Alexander Calder, Fernand Léger, Antoine Pevsner, Alejandro Otero, Carlos Cruz-Diez, and Mateo Manaure, that contributed to the public artworks program for Villanueva’s now iconic campus.
