The Art of Anamorphosis by István Orosz

István Orosz specializes in mirror anamorphosis, where a cylindrical mirror is placed on the drawing to transform a flat image into a three dimensional picture that can be viewed from many angles. He first gained recognition as a stage designer and for his work in animated film as animator and director but he is perhaps best known for his renewal of the technique of anamorphosis.

Anamorphosis is an art of distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use special devices or occupy a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image. The art of Anamorphosis was invented in China and brought to Italy in the 16th century, about the time Renaissance artists like Leonardo da Vinci were mastering 3-D and discovering slant anamorphosis.
