Victor Vasarely was born in Pecs (Hungary). He began studying medicine, left these courses and joined the fine art (1927-1929), then the Bauhaus of Budapest. His first personal exhibition was organized in Budapest in 1930, this same year he settled down in Paris.

During a first period, Vasarely created a plastic alphabet whose infinite combinations had to give birth to an "intellectual and methodical art". He gradually gave up the applied arts and was interested in an abstract pictorial creation. He wrote the "Yellow Manifesto” in 1955 in which he defined the kineticArt. The compositions were more and more elaborated, compositions where geometrical elements were united together, fitted together, switched around, to get closer to the cellular structure.

In 1965, Victor Vasarely participated to the exhibition "Responsive Eye" (New York) wich dedicated the optical Art (Op Art). The man was interested in the physics, in the architecture, in the industry and wanted his universal language. In 1976, he created his foundation in Aix-en-Provence, and drew a building that concretized his conception of the art in the town. Vasarely set up a contemporary art center and a meeting and search lavatory for artists, architects and engineers. Victor Vasarely died in 1997 in Annet-sur-Marne (France).
