Anamorphosis by Awtar Singh Virdi

Without a cylindrical mirror these paintings would look meaningless. This kind of art is called Anamorphosis and comes from the Greek words meaning “formed again.” It’s basically paintings that can be viewed only with a special device.

Anamorphic art involves a lot of physics and mathematics. A lengthy complex formulae and lot of calculations are done to make a particular picture.

These amazing paintings are made by Indian artist Awtar Singh Virdi.

Although he claim himself to be the only Anamorphic artist in the world today, but I found another Anamorphic art, created by Devorah Sperber :)

Thread Spool Works by Devorah Sperber

Using thousands of spools of thread, American installation artist Devorah Sperber created pixilated versions of iconic works of art by famous artists

"After The Last Supper," 20,736 spools of thread. Detail view: Clear acrylic viewing sphere

The spools are hung in long, adjacent columns to create a pointillist, inverted abstraction of a famous painting. When viewed by the naked eye, they are barely recognizable. When viewed through an optical device, usually a "viewing sphere" (a transparent sphere the size of a baseball) placed several feet in front of the spools), the abstractions are inverted and shrunk into a remarkably detailed and faithful image of the original painting. -source: Wikipedia

Installation view: Brooklyn Museum, 2007

"After The Mona Lisa," 5,184 spools of thread. Detail view from approximately 10 feet

Installation view from approximately 50 feet

"After Renoir," 5,024 spools of thread.

"After Da Vinci (Self Portrait)," 442 spools of thread.

"After van Eyck," 5,024 spools of thread.

"After Vermeer," 5,024 spools of thread.

Chinese Ink Paintings on Water

Water painting, as not many has heard of, differs from the commonly seen watercolor painting. This also known as Chinese Ink Paintings on Water.

Artist: Huang Zhu Lin

Huang Zhu Lin has chosen an unconventional canvas for his art, the 25-year-old Chinese artist creates his paintings on an ever-changing liquid surface.

First Huang mixes a viscous solution of water and various chemicals as his base, which he then pours into a clear tray that sits on top of a lightbox. Then he dabs coloured paints onto the surface and coaxes them into delicate patterns with a metallic needle.

"The paint drops are all in forms of circle on the liquid surface. Any patterns or designs should be transformed or created into other patterns from the circles. This is the basic painting method," he said.

In order to keep his artwork flowing and to stop the liquids from solidifying, Huang adds special chemicals to the base liquid and grease to the paint but he keeps his specific ingredients a secret.

Beijing-based Huang said it took him more than 12 months to perfect his formula and then another year to understand how to create patterns with just a needle and his mixture.

Artist: Zhu Sheng Hi

Zhu Sheng Hi, an artist from Xi’an, China’s Shaanxi Province paints on the surface of the water using a fine tool and naphta. After he’s finished the design, Zhu places a piece of paper that absorbs the paint from the surface of the water.
