Anamorphic illusions – Green art by Bernard Pras

Bernard Pras is a French painter, photographer and sculptor. He is known for creating mind-boggling anamorphic illusions. His pallet consists of found objects, wood, textiles and plastic toys. He makes use of everything that has the right color!

Take a look at this video and you will be amazed by his Job!

His latest installation is at Le palais idéal in Hauterives, France. When viewed from the right perspective, a seemingly random pile of trash is revealed to be an enormous sculptural portrait of Ferdinand Cheval. To create this masterpiece he used discarded and broken chairs, boards, figurines, and other items. Looking at each individual component and its precise placement in the overall portrait, one can’t help but marvel at the artist’s eye for perspective and his painstaking assembly of the piece.

The French artist force us to re-examine the way we look at visual art – which is itself a prism through which the artist channels a unique way of translating thoughts, emotions and ways of interpreting the world around us.

The focus of the German photographer Michael Wolf’s work is life in mega cities. Many of his projects document the architecture and the vernacular culture of metropolises. Wolf grew up in Canada, Europe and the United States. He moved to Hong Kong in 1994 where he worked for 8 years as contract photographer for stern magazine. Since 2001, Wolf has been focusing on his own projects, many of which have been published as books.

Architecture of Density is only one of his works, my favourite! But you can see much much more of Michael Wolf work in http://photomichaelwolf.com/#
