Thai Artist Creates Ghostly 3D Paintings on Layers of Fine Netting

Uttaporn-Nimmalaikaew03

Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew, a 33-year old Thai artist, creates ghostly portraits in three dimensions, painting on layers of fine netting. In an interview, Nimmalaikaew says he started using the technique after he saw a bit of paint on his mosquito netting when he was attending Silapakorn University in Bangkok.

The process for creating the illusions means that the images shift and become distorted as the viewer changes position, adding a supernatural tone to the work. More images and a video clip below.
