Today, let's delve into street art in 3-D! Awesome concept! Where wall murals invite you to "walk right into the picture," 3-D allows you to become part of the picture! Today's first featured artist is the Russian-born German street artist Nikolaj-Arndt. . .

Anamorphic illusions are drawn in a special distortion in order to create an impression of 3 dimensions when seen from one particular viewpoint. In other words, each drawing must be seen from one special viewpoint and if the viewer moves from it, the illusion is lost and the drawing becomes an unrecognizable distortion.
"My work appeals literally to the man (and woman) in the street and is not confined in galleries or limited by the gallery system".~Julian Beever

These are amazing!ReplyDelete
Illusion is reality is illusion. You never know unless you can feel or touch or experience a situation. You can't just trust one of your senses. Actually, your sixth sense is the most reliable.ReplyDelete
Sharla, Thank you for sharing this amazing art on your blog. What a boring world this would be without the arts. Gotta love it.ReplyDelete
I've seen these before and I'm in awe of them--can't figure outhow the artists get the dimensional effect. I've seen teenage graffi that was actually art wwwork making an ugly place a little better.ReplyDelete
Unbelievable. It just shows how our perceptions are deceptive and prompts us to question everything our senses tell us. Excellent art.ReplyDelete
Love it, thank you for sharing and cluing me in to this. I will be taking a longer look.ReplyDelete
