The artwork of Kurt Wenner causes you to take a step back and literally say "wow." Thanks to his clever use of perspective Wenner transforms street pavements into murals that leave you feeling as if you are standing on the edge looking down into a mystical world below.
By cleverly scaling certain objects Wenner is able to create the illusion of depth on a completely flat surface, often using his surroundings to his advantage by incorporating them into his artwork. Although originally from the U.S. he spent many years in Italy which initially inspired his work with its architecutre, culture and history. Passers by are often allowed to interact with the art, further adding to the optical illusion. For more check out his website.
