The Polish painter began his career during the Stalinist era, and then worked in the syle of socialist realism. After Stalin’s death, Fangor became interested in architecture and design, and was one of the founders of the Polish school of poster design. In 1965 he was included in “The Responsive Eye” show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, which focused on Op art developments at the time. He was recognized during this period for his paintings of blurred circular or irregular shapes in vivid colors.
