Hyperbolic Vasarely Patterns
Douglas Dunham
(Proceedings pages 347–352)


Victor Vasarely was one of the founders of the Op Art movement in the 1930's. Among other art works, he created a number of patterns based on a grid of squares, sometimes containing circles. These images are basically Euclidean. In this paper I show some hyperbolic patterns that were inspired by Vasarely's grid patterns.
