We pay homage to Brazilian-born painter, sculptor and graphic designer Almir da Silva Mavignier (born 1925) who is a brilliant master of color, geometry and optical illusion.

Active in Europe (Paris, Hamburg, Ulm) from the early 1950s, Mavignier is one the members of the highly influential Brazilian group of artist interested in abstract and kinetic art during the 1950s and 1960s. Mavignier connected his native tropical passion with European concrete art and created his own version the the op-art which he applied for fine art as well as graphic design.
