Vera Molnár (born 1924) is a French media artist of Hungarian origin. She is considered to be a pioneer of computer art. Trained as a traditional artist, she began working with computers in 1968, where she began to create algorithmic paintings based on simple geometric shapes and geometrical themes.
In this blog post we are looking at using Python Turtle to recreate some of her artwork. To create you own op art/computer art, you will need to be confident in using iterative algorithms and have a good understanding of Cartesian coordinates.
