What is – the original and only Op Art site – about?

This site is all about Op Art or ‘Optical Art’, a movement pioneered by artists like Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely in the 1960’s which came to public attention after an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1965 called “The Responsive Eye”.  On the site, you can read about the main artists, see examples of their work and find out about upcoming exhibitions, learn about the history of Op Art and download pictures from the gallery including free Op Art iPhone wallpapers.  We’re also trying to keep Op Art alive and well by scouring the web and press for any Op Art related news and posting that to the site.

If you’d like to get involved in the site, please do get in touch with us: perhaps you’re an Op Artist looking to feature your work; or you’ve got an Op Art exhibition coming up and you’re looking to spread the word; you might just have found an interesting bit of Op Art news… please do let us know.
