Felice Varini is a Swiss artist who has become famous thanks to his mind bending 3D optical illusions, many of which you can check out below in the rest of this post. Varini calls his work ‘perspective localised paintings’. They’re basically images that appear to be three dimensional when you view them from one vantage point but are actually ‘skillfully-arrayed geometry of flat graphics painted onto the surface’ that just manage to project this appearance from if you’re standing in the right place. The technical term for this is known as ‘anamorphosis’ which comes from the Greek word ‘ana’ meaning back or again and morph meaning shape or form. We’ve seen a lot of 3D and optical illusions on the site before – like these from Nagai Hideyuki and these that will just blow your mind – but none as impressive and downright weird as these, especially considering they all look so real yet are all so completely unnatural in their environments. Mind bending.
