Aleksander Drakulic

We’re delighted today to be able to showcase the work of Aleksander Drakulic, a Slovenian artist currently living and working in Budapest, Hungary.

Did you study art and if so where?

I work as a graphic designer, and have worked previously as an art director. The last few years I have been working in the field of measurement and testing: time, frequency, environmental and vibration testing systems. Thanks to all, whom I could learn from, for helping me to understand the illusion of time, space and accuracy.

Why do you like Op Art?

I prefer to call it psycho kinetic art . We live in a world that can be both a beautiful illusion and nightmare in our mind. Op Art helps us to understand that the Universe and our perception of the Universe is much more complex than it might seem and that we live within its ever changing patterns of multidimensional space-time-cycles.

Which Op Artists have particularly inspired you?

I have taken inspiration not only from the ‘traditional’ art world but also from studies of Arabic geometry, Plato, Euclid, Pythagoras, modern science and multilevel geometry which I have found to be much more useful in trying to understand the fundamentals of modern thought.

How do you make your art?

Creating artwork is a passion. Pushing geometry to its very limits, making geometry look almost like a part of the material world means you have to use all the tools you have available.
