The Hungarian word, Iboya, meaning a small forest violet, has been chosen by Vasarely to identify his astonishing series of vertical sculptures for intereior use.
The Iboya consist of Vasarely polystyrene Planetary Folklore color unities, permanently fixed on a structure of wood, weighted with lead to insure stability.
There are five different shapes: The Square, The Cross, The Twin Squares, The Small Square and the "L". All are in different color compositions. Each of these editions is limited to 50 signed and numbered copies.
Victor Vasarely, leader of the Op Art movement of 1960's, used disorientating effects to create often impossible images to the human eye, such as these Vasarely prints and sculptures.
