UK artist Patrick Hughes creates “Reverspective” art. What is Reverspective art? Glad you asked: 

Reverspectives are three-dimensional paintings that when viewed from the front initially give the impression of viewing a painted flat surface that shows a perspective view. However as soon as the viewer moves their head even slightly the three dimensional surface that supports the perspective view accentuates the depth of the image and accelerates the shifting perspective far more than the brain normally allows. This provides a powerful and often disorienting impression of depth and movement. Patrick Hughes takes full advantage of this effect in his use of surrealist images that reinforce the altered reality of the viewer. The illusion is made possible by painting the view in reverse to the relief of the surface, that is, the bits that stick furthest out from the painting are painted with the most distant part of the scene.

Enough Art 101. Let’s see it in action.
