2:23 am
and we met him in his studio and prague. 'd 'd 'd images play with perspective 3 d. becomes 2 d. the various elements fused together into a picture of the writer finance kafka anamorphic portrait. of anamorphic comes from greek and means something like reshaped. at 1st the image appears distorted and takes shape only when you change your perspective or the viewer has to occupy a certain place in the room to see the intended result. check artist patrick push coast specializes in these illusions his anamorphic artworks can be several metres across and take up entire rooms most are portraits of famous tracks here we see the founder of the multinational footwear company but. the logic.

2:25 am
them to modulating light and shade i need just the right color and an absolutely compatible shape of the best thing. every shoe is like a brush stroke the work is based on a photo of thomas mucha. this pile of computers lamps and other electronics conceals a portrait of nikola tesla the great pioneer of electrical engineering. it takes the artist about 2 months to complete a project like this. a precise sense of visual proportion is vital when assembling the elements 2. when i do a portrait of a world famous figure i really have to be exact right down to the millimeter for that person to be recognizable in the end. so i've always got to be checking to be sure it's right i have to go to the viewer spot and check everything again and
