Optical Art Effect

Top  Previous  Next

This Effect is based on Victor Vasarelys SuperNova which was painted between 1959 and 1961. Now you can equal his art and join it with your own images at the click of a mouse button!


If you want to stick to Vasarelys SuperNova style you should restrict yourself to black and white. If you prefer to imagine what he would have produced in color then choose different foreground and background colors.

You can set the number of squares in the x direction with the slider. (The number of squares in y will be worked out automatically.)

You can say that squares change size and or orientation with the geometry radio buttons.

Automatic mode: If you cannot be bothered to change the settings every time use the Wizard chooses check box.

This effect sometimes benefits from anti-aliasing.


Victor Vasarely (1908-1997), Hungarian Op-Art painter.
