He insisted on incorporating the temporal dimension into the plastic form , a path already started by the Futurists and Duchamp. His painting is based on scientific rigor and combines the laws of physics and the knowledge of geometry, together with the perceptive qualities of color and its influence on visual perception ".
Vásárhelyi Gyözö, known as Victor Vasarely was born in Hungary on April 9, 1906 and died in France on March 15, 1997. He started studying medicine in Hungary, but that was not his thing. Rather, he became interested in the abstract art of Mondrian and Malevich, people very interested in what geometry could contribute to art.
Vasarely called all this visual kinetics (kinetic plastique) and was based on the viewer's perception. His work was not based so much on the beauty of the forms as on the visual surprise they produce, motivated by perceptual deception.
