Anamorphosis is a phenomenon, a visual experience created from distorted perspective. We have seen such illusions on the streets, where artists transformed a simple plane into a 3 dimensional realm, a virtual reality from the amalgamation of calculated art and wild imaginations. Now this series of anamorphic art is surfaced on a chromed cylinder, which projects seemingly nonsensical drawings on planes into stunning masterpieces. The cylinder becomes the untouched drawing board portraying the actual work which is taking place on another medium. The science behind such creations defies the natural human inclination to depend on the first tangible perspective. This is an intriguing process worth exploring in other practices of art, namely graphic designing, product designing and architecture.

My personal favourite anamorphic art from this series is the work of Istvan Orosz, where both medium (plane & cylinder) simultaneously project non-distorted, beautiful drawings; a league of its own.
