It is Not Digital, It is Anamorphic Art!

Anamorphic art by Felice Varini (9)

Artist Felice Varini is a master of anamorphic installations. He paints directly on indoor and outdoor spaces such as rooms, stairways, buildings, and more. His work requires that you view it at a specific angle, so that you can see geometric shapes.

Notes about the artist: [1]

Felice Varini was born in 1952 in Locarno, Switzerland. and currently lives in Paris.

[…] The paintings are characterized by a single vantage point from which the viewer can see the complete painting (usually a simple geometric shape such as circle, square, line), while various ‘broken’ fragmented shapes are seen from various other view points. Varini contends that the work exists as a whole — the complete shape as well as the fragments. “My concern,” he says “is what happens outside the vantage point of view.”
