Op Art April

Have you been wondering when we’ll talk about an artist that’s still alive? Then April is your month! We’ll be taking a look at the life and art of Bridget Riley. She was a prominent artist in the Op Art movement of the 1960s, first exploring geometric patterns in black and white and then moving to color combinations to influence the eye.

Riley’s work spans seven decades, so there’s plenty to explore. For the project this month, I’ll be playing with patterns and colors to see what kind of fun effects emerge. Let’s get ready to take our eyes on a wild ride through Op Art!

If you haven’t seen the other Artists of the Month, this is a great place to start!
