Bridget Riley is an English painter and one of the leading representatives of Op-Art. Her predominantly large-format works are the result of a long process of creation. Riley mixes the colours herself, as they play an important role in terms of effect and perception. An already large-format prototype is created with gouache, which means that very accurate and precise work should be done to prevent colour and geometric inaccuracies.
