Olympic carpet with anamorphic effect!

Gravesend olympic carpet with anamorphic effect, originally uploaded by urbancanvas08.

Heres a photo following on from my last blog of our finished Olympic Carpet of Dreams…..done for Gravesham Borough Council’s build up to the London Olympic Games 2012.

Anamorphic art can create 3D effects if viewed from the correct angle.

Anamorphic Street Art has been made popular today through the 3D art of artists like Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner but the idea is not new to art and was even practiced by Michelangelo!

In fact one of the most famous pieces of anamorphic art can be found in the National Gallery in London…….The Ambassadors by Hans Holbein the Younger and his famous ‘anamorphic skull’

Ideally I would of liked another day or so embelishing and refining this work but such is life we just ran out of time so its not as good as I would have wished it to be 😉
