Jean-Pierre Yvaral

Born in 1934 - France

BIOGRAPHY

The only son of a Hungarian painter: Victor Vasarely, Jean-Pierre Vasarely aka "Yvaral" is a French painter and artist born on 25th January 1934 in Paris and died on 4th August 2002 in the same city. After a course in graphic arts at École des arts appliqués, Yvaral became known during the 1950's, by creating works which had a peculiarity of being structured mathematically, especially due to the use of algorithms.

Very influenced by the unique and futuristic technique of his father, Yvaral is known as one of the founders of "digital art", a term which belongs to him since 1975. "Digital" which means "governed by numbers" and not "computers" here, as it was only about ten years later that he used a software tool in his work, for example to program his geometric paintings.

A supporter of experimental art, Yvaral's work stands out by a desire to disrupt the physiological and cognitive phenomena through the use of optical illusion due to the interaction of colors and geometric shapes, the moiré effect or working with depth and space. His desire was to create a new visual language based on simple and codified elements. From 1960 to 1968, he was a co-founding member of G.R.A.V. (Visual Art Research Group), which campaigns for playful creations, where art is directly accessible by the spectator, and is allowed to be touched and handled.

His work has been displayed in several private and public collections, throughout the world, at the Modern art museum in New York or even the Tate Gallery in London.
