Mind Boggling Optical Illusion Art by Felice Varini
Posted April 26, 2009on:
Felice Varini ‘paints on architectural and urban spaces, such as buildings, walls and streets. The paintings are characterized by one vantage point from which the viewer can see the complete painting (usually a simple geometric shape such as circle, square, line), while from other view points the viewer will see ‘broken’ fragmented shapes. Felice argues that the work exists as a whole – with its complete shape as well as the fragments. “My concern,” he says “is what happens outside the vantage point of view.’ (Check out his Wikipedia page here.)
His home page is in French, but is actually quite easy to navigate even if you don’t speak French.
His work is awesome on first sight, but you really don’t appreciate the scale of it until you see it from the other vantage points…
