Victor Vasarely (1906 – 1997), the Hungarian-French artist is best known for his work as an Op-Artist. As a student of the Muhely Academy in the 1920s, a school that represented the Bauhaus movement in Budapest, colour theory, developed by theorist and artist Josef Albers became a keen interest to Vasarely. Thus, his earlier works of optical illusions were more focused on how colours worked together. His later works of the 50s and 60s were more focused on the idea of the tricking the eye on a two dimensional surface.

In the 1970s and 1980s an interest in black and white is highly evident in his optical works such as Untitled (Silver and Grey) and Ter-Ur. Overall, his works range in terms of colour and pattern sequence to fool the eye. Two of his highly sought after series are Hexagon and Enigma.
