Jean Pierre Yvaral (1932-2002)

Combining the poetry of geometry with figurative art, Yvaral has created a wholly original body of artworks that has received the praise of important critics and museum curators around the world. Born in France, Yvaral grew up in a complete artistic ambiance. Working alongside his father, Victor Vasarely, he discovered and explored the beauty of geometry in art. The inspiration of the French Impressionists and Pointillists is evident in Yvaral's vibrant paintings. The artist juxtaposes pure colors next to one another to achieve the illusion of three-dimensional forms.

________
Jean Pierre Yvaral was the son of Victor Vasarely. He was born in Paris and the co-founded Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel, a venue in which he exhibited for many years. In his desire to codify visual constants, he searched for a geometric vocabulary using a cubic structure and structured horizons. He integrated these concepts with new manipulations made possible by advanced technology, and explored ways to define digital art and the use of the digitalized image.

In 1962 he introduced the first of what would eventually number nearly 300 photo-realist digitalized paintings, incorporating various historic figures and celebrities, incorporating Marilyn Monroe, Salvador Dali, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington.

As with Lowell Nesbitt, Yvaral had a long-standing relationship with New York’s esteemed Howard Wise Gallery, an exhibition space devoted to art and new technology — and a radical departure from the focus of other Manhattan galleries during the 1960s.  In addition to solo shows at the Howard Wise Gallery, Yvaral’s work was exhibited with many European galleries, including the Ricke Gallery in Kassel, Germany; the Tobies and Silex Gallery in Cologne; the Hagen Museum in Germany; the Denise Rene Gallery in Paris; and Semika Huber Gallery in Zurich. He also participated in group exhibitions at the Charleroi Museum in Belgium; the Museum of Grenoble in France; the Henie Onstad Museum in Oslo; the Pori Art Museum in Finland; and the Museum of Fine Arts in Caracas.
