Yvaral, also known as Jean-Pierre Vasarely, was the son of the renowned artist Victor Vasarely.

Born in 1934 in Paris, he followed his father’s steps studying art and experimenting with geometric abstract art. In 1955, he created his first kinetic works and five years later, co-founded the Group de Recherche d’Art Visuel (GRAV) which won the gold medal at the 5th Biennale in San Marino.

The Seventies were prolific years for Yvaral. He produced some of his most important works such as the Renault logo which is still in use today or a design for the façade of the new RTL building. During this same decade, he also introduced digital images into his works, creating numerical portraits of celebrities, among others Marilyn Monroe.

Yvaral’s works is exhibited to the public at the MoMA (New York), the Tate Gallery (London), the Museum of Modern Art (Paris)…
