You may think you’re looking at a bizarre painting, but look closer, and you’ll realize that it’s actually an anamorphic 3D sculpture. The massive portrait of Malian actor Sotigui Kouyaté is the latest work of French artist Bernard Pras. It was created entirely out of recycled materials such as clothes and rags, wood, glass lanterns, dishes, rubber and other trash Bernard would gather from the installation site.

After seeing lots of anamorphic illusions you get really bored about this whole thing. Yesterday, however, a friend of mine showed me a video titled “Amazing Anamorphic Illusions” that just blew my mind. A master of such illusions, going by the Brusspup nickname, posted this video just two days ago and it already has more than 2 millions views.
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.
