Artist Creates A Pile Of Junk That Looks Like A Portrait When Seen From The Right Angle
French artist Bernard Pras is known for his unique style of art. His work heavily features a phenomenon called "anamorphosis," which is where a distorted image (or in Pras' case, disjointed objects) looks normal when viewed from a particular angle or through a suitable mirror or lens. His work has been featured in many prominent galleries worldwide. In this particular piece, Pras pays an homage to a late fellow French artist, Ferdinand Cheval. His face is only visible from a certain angle, and a viewing lens also assists in making the image more distinct. The piece is on display at Le Palais Ideal, a giant sculptural installation that Cheval worked on for 33 years, made of stones that picked up each day on his route while working for the postal service.
