In 1930 he married and later had two sons. Victor settled in Paris. Soon he started sculpting and painting using optical illusions or Op-Art. In the years around 1950 Varasely designed his own style of art. It was influenced by everyday items, such as tiles in the Paris metro, pebbles found on vacation and cubic houses. Eventualy he came up with the Plastic Alphabet. Many other artists have copied Victors style of pianting such as Andy Warhol.
