I Heart Bernard Pras
French artist Bernard Pras works almost entirely within the realm of assemblage and anamorposis, a visual illusion where a distorted projection—often made from paint or a collection or objects—must be viewed from a specific vantage point to reconstitute the intended image.
I’ve seen other examples of assemblage (notably Vic Muñiz’s work that is documented in the film Wasteland) and I’ve seen chalk drawing examples of anamorposis that make the viewer feel as if they are looking down into a 3D space. However artist Bernard Pras combines both in his incredible portraits. See for yourself!
