Street Art Techniques - Anamorphosis
The right viewpoint is the essence of this art form. Hard to believe, or ...?
Under Anamorphose One understands an art technique by which the produced representations are understandable only from a certain viewing angle. In some cases, the actual meaning of the corresponding artwork is encrypted in its mirror image! Thanks to the Italian genius Leonardo da Vinci and his numerous projects and original ideas, the world has known this art form since the 15th century! The most interesting modern example is the s.g. anamorphic typography the young British graphic designer Joseph Egan and Hunter Tompson. As a final thesis at the Art and Design College in Chelsea they put different short texts on the school walls - but these gave their deep meaning and conveyed the hidden meaningful message, only if you looked at them from a specific location!
Photorealism or how art and reality merge into a whole
Since the 1960s, photorealists have striven to create a "new reality" - their works are so realistic that they are often confused with real life photos. By recording everyday scenes with a camera and then copying everything down to the smallest detail on the canvas, the artists achieve a truly amazing result. The most famous photorealists in the world include Richard Estes, Audrey Flack, Chuck Close and the sculptor Duane Hanson. However, this style of art is being heavily criticized because it is not possible to determine clearly which one should be the leading factor - the ability to imitate or the creative style and original ideas.
Street Art Techniques - Illustrations on Dirty Cars
Street Art Techniques - Even the dirt can turn into a masterpiece in the right hands
The 52-year-old graphic designer, sculptor and illustrator Scott Wade from Texas inspire everyone around him by turning the dirty car windows into real works of art. He needs neither a canvas nor dyes, but simply the dust deposited on the car windows! When Scott came home after a hard day at work, he did not draw a few figures on the dirty surface of his car without great care, but no one could decipher that scrawl back then. After some time he succeeded in telling exciting stories and expressing inner worlds through his pictures - thus he became the main representative of this new style in art and quickly found many successors! Although he devotes a lot of time to his unusual projects, they go away with the first raindrops. Thanks to the numerous photos of his works, we can also enjoy a little bit of his art!
Let three-dimensional as two-dimensional effect
What shoud that? A photo, a painting or maybe a real person?
In the works of the famous American artist Alexa Meade, real life goes into a beautiful and richly colored painting. These are portrait paintings in which a real living person is hidden somewhere in the picture. Sounds interesting but also confusing, right? Actually, Meade paints the bodies of her models with acrylics, creating an amazing effect of optical illusion - the dredimensional representations look like two-dimensional! Only the unpainted body parts like hair and eyes betray the viewer, where reality ceases and art begins. This art is a well-balanced combination of painting, photography, illustration and performance and will definitely take your breath away!
Street art techniques - art made of shadows
These artists bring different objects or persons into specific positions to create interesting figures out of their shadows. In addition, of course, you need the right lighting to achieve the desired effect and put everyone in wonderment! Although the painterly talent of the respective artist does not matter at all here, rich fantasy is required! Passion, skill and dedication are three more requirements!
