To say that a drawing is in 3D may sound oxymoronic but thanks to a little optical illusion, it’s actually possible. Anamorphosis means distorted projection. It requires the viewer to look at the piece of art from a specific vantage point, otherwise it wouldn’t make sense. Taking advantage of this, 21-year-old Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki has created an entire series of 3D drawings that seam to leap out of the page to get you. He was inspired by Julian Beever’s street art.
