Bridget Riley

About

First inspired to paint by the Cornish landscapes of her childhood, Bridget Riley has gone on to become one of the modern era’s most influential artists and was the subject of a recent retrospective at London’s Southbank Centre. Trained at Goldsmiths and the Royal College of Art, she gained acclaim with her ‘Op-art’ pictures of the 1960s and is known for her shapes and patterns that seemingly move before a viewer’s eyes.
