Felice Varini’s vantage point illusions

Felice Varini is a Swiss artist known for his geometric perspective-localised paintings in rooms and other spaces, using projector-stencil techniques. He paints on architectural and urban spaces, such as buildings, walls and streets. The paintings are characterized by one vantage point from which the viewer can see the complete painting (usually a simple geometric shape such as circle, square, line), while from other view points the viewer will see ‘broken’ fragmented shapes. Varini argues that the work exists as a whole – with its complete shape as well as the fragments. “My concern,” he says “is what happens outside the vantage point of view.” Source: Wikipedia
