  • from what I understand Kaphar copies classic american and european works and then carefully cuts them up

    • dno

      Wow, not only are his works brilliant pieces of art, they make intense political statements about the original art, and ‘history’ of the Colonial period. Super Stoked on these! WOW!

  • Brilliant. Just Brilliant!

  • sr

    wow… that first one is amazing!

  • lapetitefaon

    I love these! Completely changes the context of the works, especially the second to last is so brilliant, a formerly very serious painting and now the subject looks completely silly and forces the viewer to see it in a new light, brilliant idea!

  • dan

    are these on display anywhere?

  • i second SR. the first one is awesome. trips me out, cant stop staring at it.

  • i saw this exhibition at the seattle museum. they’re even more fantastic in person. his drawings with tar are really gripping.

    This work is absolutely amazing. I always think that the most successful art in terms of adoration, aspiration and inspiration are those artworks that make you think “why didn’t I think of that!”

    Definitely inspirational as a fashion design student!

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
