Op Art Software

OpArtica II Tunnel – great free downloadable software (or you can run it within a browser) that allows you to create your own Op Art. Slightly limited in terms of the range of Op Art you can produce but is very easy to use and gives excellent results. There is also a link to an earlier version. Thanks to Umit Calik for pointing this resource out to us. Below are a couple of examples of pieces Umit produced using the OpArtica software.
