First glance on the “Recycled Rasta-man” may give you an impression you’re looking at some bizarre oil painting, but when you look closer, you’ll soon realise it’s actually an anamorphic 3D sculpture made of recycled materials – The massive portrait of actor Sotigui Kouyaté. This portrait was made by French artist Bernard Pras, and was created entirely out of recycled materials such as clothes, rags, wood, glass lanterns, dishes, rubber and other trash Bernard would gather from the installation site. As it usually applies to anamorphic art, Bernard’s work can only be seen from a certain angle. When you look at the installation from any other point of view, a pile of trash is all you see.

    would love to see it from the “rubbish heap” angle to get a proper appreciation of the illusion

    Are there pictures of the sculpture from different angles? A video would also be interesting.
