The Anamorphic Illusion Collection by Felice Varini

Swiss artist Felice Varini has created some of the most stunning anamorphic illusions we have ever come across. Those unfamiliar with this intriguing form art, would be interested to know that the art form requires a special technique called anamorphosis. Anamorphosis, simply put is a distorted projection or perspective that can be seen only when the viewer uses a special device or occupies a specific vantage point.

The fascinating Anamorphic Illusion Collection by Felice Varini follows the same principles, and hence the complete shapes come only to life when viewed at certain angles. The experimental art form may look simplistic, however it requires an expertise that only few possess. In fact, Varin himself is quite experienced in this art form and has been creating illusions of flat graphics superimposed on three dimensional spaces from as long as 1979. Felice‘s works are often found on architectural and urban spaces and are known to change the dynamism of any given space. The artwork is distinctively modern, and the artist is also known to be partial to a projector-stencil technique.

The Anamorphic Illusion collection is a complex interplay of geometry and art and was created by Varini as part of a series of spaces. At first glance, the works appear to be just random artwork or arbid broken pieces. However, just a slight shift in perspective, along with a different viewing angle and you will be exposed to a rich medley of stunning works that give depth to any dynamic space. Not surprisingly, the compilation of the “Anamorphic Illusion”-Artworks took more than thirty years to complete. The artist also garnered a lot of accolades for his past collections including the “Cercle et suite d’éclats” collection. One of his most famous works till date, the “Cercle et suite d’éclats” illusion involved him working at the scale of a village, and superimposing perfect circles on the town of Vercorin in the Swiss Alps. Now if that doesn’t impress you, then nothing will.

You do not have to be a connoisseur of art to appreciate the complexity of the Anamorphic Illusion Collection. Varini’s harmonized artistic approach to achieve a unique design vision is impressive, and his work tends to disentangle from the ordinary.  If you are a fan of unique artwork then do check out the Incredible Skyrim Concept Art or even the Crazy and Unique Felt Art.
