CALL FOR ARTISTS – OP ART

By futra / June, 3, 2016 / 0 comments

FUTRA IS A MULTIMEDIA EXPERIENCE BRAND THAT MAKES THE CONNECTION BETWEEN GENRES, ART, AND DESIGN. FUTRA INVITES ARTISTS OF ALL WALKS OF LIFE: VISUAL, EXPERIMENTAL, VIDEO, AND PERFORMANCE – IN ADDITION TO MUSICIANS – TO FIND HARMONY WITH ONE ANOTHER.

OP ART (OPTICAL ART) IS BASED ON ILLUSION AND EXPERIMENTATION PERCEIVED THROUGH OUR OWN SENSORY APPARATUS. ARTISTS CHALLENGE MINDS AND EYES WITH ABSTRACTION, MINIMALISM, GEOMETRY, LIGHT, PLAY, AND RADIATING LINES. BEING MULTI-FOCAL, NOT FIXED TO A SINGLE FOCUS, CONTINUES TO BE A VERY RELEVANT AND MODERN CONCEPT. CAPABLE OF SEEING BEYOND OUR PHYSICAL REALITY, OP ART GENERATES DAZZLING OPTICAL SENSATIONS AND IMMERSIVE OTHER WORLDLY EXPERIENCES.

ILLUSION, PERCEPTION, MIND-BENDING, REBELLION, WARPED REALITY,
RADIATING, PYCHEDELIC, EXPERIMENTAL, ECCENTRIC ABSTRACTION, INFINITE
