Swiss artist Felice Varini creates special visual effects with his anamorphic illusions. He is famous for his geometric perspective paintings, which take up enormous spaces like sides of walls, buildings and streets, inviting the viewer to find the right place to stand in order to discover his works of art. The artist took over Gran Palais in Paris, where he used a polka dot pattern to change the classical facade of the historical place. Using a combination of projectors and stencils, Varini has the skills that he needs to be named one of the greatest modern day artists. Due to his impressing talent and enlarged vision, he was nominated for the 2000/2001 “Marcel Duchamp Prize”. Furthermore, according to art critic Joël Koskas, the artist’s works feature elements that turn them into anti-Mona Lisa pieces of art.
Paige Bradley is the creator of a sculpture so expressive and striking, it will definitely take you a few minutes to analyze it. His piece of art is titled “Expansion”, and it presents a beautiful young woman searching inner peace and bleeding with light.

Before all the pieces were reassembled, a lighting specialist implemented a system that was built to make the sculpture glow from within.
Kumi Yamashita is an outstanding Japanese artist who manages to create artwork that combines the material that she uses with the immaterial that she creates, to reflect a certain shape or form.

Besides being known for creating outstanding shadow art, Yamashita is one of the modern day artists who is famous for creating portraits using a single piece of string, or unusual items like a show or a credit card. So, we can only imagine how creative she can be, and how many innovative works she will continue to make.
