Who was Victor Vasarely? The Father of Op Art
Born in Pécs, Hungary in 1906, Victor Vasarely is a very special artist in the history of 20th century art. He became famous during his lifetime and distinguished himself in contemporary art by creating a new trend: Optical Art.
Venus & the Cat proudly brought three Victor Vasarely works to life in fine bone china on stunning 10" coupe wall plates, hand crafted and silkscreened in strictly limited edition runs of 50 pieces per work, for Selfridges London.
