 Op art, short for optical art, is a style of visual art that uses optical illusions. It began in the 1960s when artists used shapes, colors and patterns to create images that tricked the eye. Now students can learn how to draw an Op Art Cube, one of the simplest forms of illusion around.

Although the term was coined and the exhibition held in the mid-1960s, most people who have studied these things agree that Victor Vasarely pioneered the movement with his 1938 painting “Zebra.”

It can also be argued that none of Op Art would have been possible without the prior Abstract and Expressionist movements. These led the way by de-emphasizing or eliminating representational subject matter.
