Hungarian anamorphic artist Sandor Vamos creates incredible trick-of-the-eye 3D drawings that seem to jump from the page. With an integral understanding of angles and a knack for perspective, Vamos uses clever shading, line work, and perspectives to create his hand-drawn 3D optical illusions. From letters, numbers, and symbols to animals and even Pokémon characters, the talented artist can make pretty much anything look as though it’s come to life.
Anamorphic art stems from the early Renaissance, and was popularized by artists such as M. C. Escher, who made distorted images that could only be understood when viewed at a certain angle. Vamos uses the same technique to create his work, photographing each 2D drawing from specific angles, creating the illusion that they’re 3D. While many of Vamos’ mind-boggling illustrations appear to leap from their pages towards the viewer, others appear to recess inwards through the table and down towards an unknown abyss.
The artist shares the secrets behind his illusions with time-lapse videos on his YouTube channel, capturing his fascinating process. You can also follow Vamos on Instagram to find more of his work.
