Antonio Marra (*1959 Volturara Irpina, Italy) is an Italian artist. 1982 he graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Naples. Marra lives and works in Offenbach am Main in Germany. As a protagonist of Op-Art, he applies a style of visual art to his paintings that uses optical illusions. Marra achieves particular optical effect by modelling his canvases and creating a lamellar, relief-like structure on which he deliberately and precisely applies different colours. Depending on the perspective of the spectator, his paintings give the viewer the impression of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrating patterns, or of swelling or warping.
