If I’m being honest, I never really paid much attention to street art until I moved to Paris. I was aware of it, of course, but it wasn’t something that I ever really sought out. However, since moving to Paris, I’ve discovered a thriving art scene that uses the city as its canvas, and more importantly, a culture that respects this medium and actively encourages it. Now, I love discovering new works as they appear, and I’m familiar with Invader, Kraken, Miss.Tic, A2, C215, and the many others who work in and around Paris. Which means I can’t feature them as a Daily Hart, as much as I may love their work. So for today’s helping, I turned to Google, and a couple of rabbit holes later, I landed on Italian artist Vera Bugatti.
Personally, I think her work is extraordinary. But what really caught my eye was her 3D and anamorphoses work. The photo above is just one example from her portfolio, and I encourage you to discover more on her website. Every image is incredible, and yet I have no idea how these images are even possible. Even after staring at them intently for several minutes, my brain still thinks it’s being tricked. And maybe it is, to a certain extent. And I love it.
According to her website, Vera Bugatti has worked in France in the past, so I hope she will come to Paris sooner rather than later. I would love to see her work in person instead of through my computer screen. Until then, I’ll keep looking through her portfolio in amazement. Seriously, how does she do this?
