Anamorphosis


Anamorphosis is a particular kind of “trompe l’oeil” decoration for ceilings or walls, that gives the observer an illusory tridimensional view of a flat image that changes, depending on the perspective of the  viewer.

Dimensions and techniques depend on subject, location and size (upon request), and the perspective of the viewer.

For example, on a ceiling the artist can simulate a hole through which you can see a landscape, or, on a wall, the viewer can see a window or a niche from which sculpture or  figure jumps out. On the top of a flat table surface, the viewer can see a rising object or person.
