Victor Vasarely, Vega, 1957

Vasarely was one of the best representatives of Op Art, which was founded on abstraction, but employed optical illusion as the primary expressive element. His compositions are often black and white, playing with the eye, through a complicated juxtaposition of simplest elements.

Abstract art is a generic term that describes artistic creations composed without using visual references from the surrounding world. It is considered to be the opposition of realism. Abstract art appears as semi-abstraction or pure abstraction form. Semi-abstract artwork does contain some shapes of a person or an object, but stylized and reduced; while pure abstraction is absolutely free of any such references. Purely abstract art focuses on composition of basic pictorial elements – color, form, brushstroke, pattern, volume, tone and texture. Abstract art is related to the realm of non-visual, emotional and contemplative. It is often equated with nonfigurative, nonobjective and nonrepresentational art, but these terms are not always entirely related to abstraction alone.
