Street illusions: Trompe-l'oeil and optical games in street art
Regular price €29,90
When street art goes WOW! Today's trompe-l'oeil has little to do with the one that for centuries has punctuated the history of art. After having dusted it of its purely decorative hints while perfectly mastering its formal constraints, the urban illusionists offer the public interactive and visual games as diversified as they are astonishing: anamorphoses brought up to date in stunning stagings, letters in 3D animated by digital processes, or even black holes and other polychrome vortices that lead us into a form of meditative geometry... After a historical introduction in which Codex Urbanus returns to the sources of this type of pictorial production, Chrixcel presents some twenty of these international artists who have become masters in the art of illusion and shows us how, through a rich portfolio of styles and techniques, they transcend the reality of our cities and open up new and incredible perspectives. With the participation of 23 international artists1010 - Astro - Ben Johnston - Bond Truluv - Carlos Alberto GH - Ceser87 - Cee Pil - Cinta Vidal - Darel Carey - Drasko Boljevic - Hoxxoh - Huge - JR - Leon Keer - Liu Bolin - Peeta - Pejac - Scaf - Shozy - Soda - Vile - Vinie - Wild Drawing.
