Swiss artist Felice Varini has been creating illusions of flat graphics superimposed on three dimensional spaces since 1979 using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis. The complete shapes can only be seen when viewed at certain angles, otherwise the viewer will only see some random broken pieces.
If you happen to be in France rigth now, you can finally make your old dream come true! A giant mirrored building facade by artist Leandro Erlich will instantly turn you into a Spiderman. The installation is called Bâtiment (Building) and is currently on display at Le 104 in Paris as part of their In_Perceptions exhibition. Be sure to also check out his incredible Fake Swimming Pool we featured earlier (if you haven’t done that yet.)
A lot of women are probably more obsessed with a pimple, bad hair or their butt than they are concerned about breast cancer. In order to raise breast cancer awareness, Breast Cancer Foundation in Singapore creatively used body art to ask women if they were “obsessed with the right things?”
Do you remember the Anamorphic Typography by Joseph Egan we’ve posted earlier? Well, Truly Design made this cool Medusa illusion using the same eye-deceiving technique called anamorphosis. This challenging work was implemented in the factory/urban lab which hosted Sub Urb Art.
Today, we want to show you another wonderful 3D illusion which is installed in front of the steps of Paris’s city hall. French artist François Abélanet created this incredible 3-dimensional grass globe with the help of about ninety workers and called it ‘Qui croire?’ (‘who to believe?’). When viewed at a certain angle it looks as though it was a large sphere.
This time we compiled a list of the world’s top 5 most talented 3D sidewalk chalk artists showcasing some of their best works. Those guys are: Edgar Mueller, Julian Beever, Kurt Wenner, Manfred Stader, and Eduardo Rolero. Their works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.
Born and raised in New Orleans La, USA, Craig Tracy has always been an artist. A graduate with honors from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Craig was a professional Freelance Illustrator by the age of twenty. Actually, he hated being an illustrator, so he retired from illustration 6 years later. Only then he fell in love with body painting, and now he’s one of the most famous body painting artists in the world.
There are probably three things you cannot avoid in life – death, taxes and seeing another collection of 3D pavement art on the Internet. While Julian Beever’s 3D Pavement Drawings are the most popular, we believe that artists like Kurt Wenner are less known, so we will take a risk and share his works with you.
Alexa Meade seems to be really busy faking new paintings, so we thought it’s time to update our previous collection of her Fake Painting Photographs. As we’ve already mentioned in our previous article, what you are about to see, are not paintings on canvas! Alexa Meade paints with acrylics directly on human flesh creating the illusion of painterly portraits.
Aren’t you tired of all those digitally modified photoshopped pictures? A girl sends you her picture, and when you meet her the Photoshop effects are gone on her face. Nowadays you can’t believe even your friend who’s showing his newest photos from his trip to Egypt, because all those photos might be photoshopped. It’s a scary world we’re living in – full of lies, sins and photoshopped images. But things can be different. There are brave people who said NO to Photoshop and did everything in an old fashioned way.
