We are well introduced with anamorphic drawings, and most of you know that #Istvan Orovitz dedicated his life to create some of the best and most complex anamorphic drawings today. This time he did something he called Atlantis. I’m not sure whether he gave us a secret map of a long lost civilization, or just some kind of plan of the city. But what I do know, is that if you follow the instructions and place cylindrical mirror on top of it, you’ll get to see what Istvan wanted you to see. I’ve included two original drawings after the jump, so be sure to print them out and play a little. Then report your findings!

    Love the site!
    But personally i don’t really find anamorphosis very interesting but rather boring :( I prefer the other illusions but compared to other anamorphosis i suppose these are quite good :)

    The South African artist William Kentridge has created amazing anamorphic videos. I’ve seen them in an exhibition but am not sure if they can be found on the net.

    The problem is how many people have cylindrical mirrors lying around their homes?

    What the mind conceives, the heart believes.

  6. I’m lost, as for the anamorphic drawings, I just don’t see it as an optical illusion. I know I’m missing something, I just don’t know what. Wish I did. Yes indeed.

    These anamorphic drawings are rather dull.

    anthro is some of the coolest art around! the amazing effect, these drawings are about perception and deep thinking!

    Why are you using Istvan Orovitz when the artist’s name is Istvan Orosz??? It’s really weird because when I search the net, I find that other websites also use Orovitz in the title but then later in the page use Orosz…

    This is so interesting, a small example of things that are not always what they seem, (are they ever?)
    I’m so inspired that I’ve managed to get hold of some cylindrical mirrors, enough for me and my grandchildren to play with.
    Your website gets better all the time!
