A number of op-art serigraphs or silkscreen prints from the works of Hungarian-French painter of geometric abstractions Victor Vasarely (1906-1997) are on display at the Persian Gulf Museum on Kish Island, Hormuzgan Province.

The exhibition is organized by Saless Art gallery in Tehran, Persian Gulf Museum and Fara Art Group, affiliated to ‘Space Design’ consulting architects institute, based in Tehran, Honaronline reported.

Opened on July 27, the exhibit will run through August 27, featuring some 100 silkscreen prints from Vasarely, known to many as the father of modern op-art, a style of visual art using optical illusions to present impressions of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns, swelling or warping.

The serigraphs are in a limited number. They are provided by Vasarely Foundation (Fondation Vasarely), a museum in Aix en Provence, France, dedicated to the works of Victor Vasarely.

Vasarely established the foundation in 1966, aiming to build a center to promote ‘art for all’ and ‘city of tomorrow,’ two of his visionary ideas. After his death, the foundation was re-secured by the efforts of his daughter Michell. The foundation ships the prints as rolled in mailing tubes.

Persian Gulf Museum and its cultural complex is open all days from 10 am-10 pm. It is closed between 1-6 pm.
