Anamorphic Drawings: Hidden Images Revealed

Anamorphic drawings are distorted pictures requiring the viewer to use a special, often reflective device to reconstitute the image. István Orosz is a Hungarian illustrator and a master of the technique, hand drawing his images where every straight line is a complex curve. Taking the technique as far as he could, his images contain hidden anamorphic images inside an incredibly complex picture viewable with the naked eye.

Here are additional images, with the reflective cylinder being removed.

  14. Hello friends,
    I could see that all of you are wondering by seeing the artworks, right???
    You will be amazed if you see the Free Hand Anamorphic Portrait art by Mr. Awtar Singh Virdi. He is a 73 years old artist from India having Guinness World Record in this technique.

  15. Nate Grovesays:

    He draws on the paper while looking in the curved mirror, that way he is only seeing the finished “effect” and doesn’t get confused or distracted by what it actually looks like (ok so I made that sound WAY easier then it is….)
    Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher both dabbled in this concept a little bit too.

  16. Cayleesays:

    this form of art is several artists work combined, i feel a resemblence between dahli,and a anamorphic view of which the great artist gaudi so commonly used around the barcalonian featured buildings . for an insight into the featured art work of Istvan Orosz take a holiday and visit the museum of fine arts in solieum del costiom Barcelona .
