Victor Vasarely was born in Hungary in 1906. After a short medical education, he entered the Muhëly, known as the Bauhaus school in Budapest, in 1929. However, he moved to Paris in 1930, escaping authoritarian political power. He then became a graphic designer for the Havas advertising agency.
He is known to be the creator of optical art, and his aesthetic research soon focused on the relationship between lines, perspective and the play of light and shadow. In 1955, Vasarely published the Yellow Manifesto, which defined kinetic art. Art is no longer defined by a subject, or even a composition or a technique, but by its apprehension by the eye.See more
