OP Art

Op art stands for ‘optical art’ and is an art form based on abstract geometric patterns, usually lines circle sand squares painted in strongly contrasting colours. The effect of such pictures is such that it produces optical shimmers, flickering and after-images in the eye of the spectator. Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely are leading exponents of this style.
