Who is Vera Molnár?

Vera Molnár, the icon of digital and geometric art, bowed out on December 7, 2023 at the ripe old age of 99, leaving behind an immeasurable artistic legacy. Born in Budapest in 1924, this Hungarian artist, based in Paris since 1947, has shaped an exceptional artistic career, combining creativity, avant-gardism and a pioneering foray into the world of algorithmic art.

Vera Molnár's fascinating story has its roots in a childhood where, at the age of ten or eleven, her family doubted her artistic abilities. However, a visionary uncle, a Sunday painter, gave him a box of pastels, thus triggering an artistic passion that would mark his life. His first sketches of asunset by Lake Balatonalready reveal a propensity for visual experimentation, foreshadowing his later exploration of geometric art.

It was in Paris in the 1960s that Molnár truly shook up the artistic world by embracing computing as a creative tool. She was one of the first to use algorithms and computers to generate abstract works of art, anticipating the rise of contemporary digital art.

His exceptional contribution was honored with a series of NFTs produced in 2022 and put up for auction, testifying to his ability to remain at the forefront of artistic innovation until the end of his life.
