Artist of the Month – April 2021

By 30 April 2021All School News

This month at Chiswick & Bedford Park we are learning about Victor Vasarely (1906 -1997). Born in Hungary in 1906, Vasarely is widely accepted as one of the grandfathers of the Op (optical) Art movement. Specialising in applied graphic art and typographical design at art college, over the next three decades Vasarely developed a distinctive geometric and abstract style. One of his most famous pieces is Zebra. Created in 1950, the piece creates the illusion of a 3D zebra using black and white lines. His work has been displayed in some of the most famous galleries in the world including the Tate in central London.
