Optical Art Op ArtOptical Art (Op Art) is a mathematically-themed form of Abstract art, which uses repetition of simple forms and colors to create vibrating effects, patterns, foreground-background confusion, an exaggerated sense of depth, and other visual effects. In the 1960's, the term "Op Art" was coined to describe the work of a growing group of abstract painters.
