We analyze Vasarely's works from the viewpoint of the theory of visual perception, mathematics and modularity. The conclusion is that almost all construction methods, modular elements, optical effects, and visual illusions belonging to these fields are (re)discovered by Vasarely, mostly by intuition, creative visual thinking, and experimenting, and used in his artworks.
