3D Paintings by Xia Xiaowan

I have recently discovered the astonishing art work created by Chinese artist Xia Xiaowan. His work is very creative and different in a way that sets him apart from all other artists. 

Using his own unique technique, Xiaowan creates layers of 2D paintings on multiple thin transparent layers of glass, which, when stacked together, give the original painting an extra dimension and depth; which, in turn, makes the original painting appear holographic and sculpture-like.

The shape of the painting changes depending the direction from which an observer views the installation; thus maintaining the illusion of the extra added dimension and its holographic perspective. 

Several works by Xiaowan are offered on ArtNet here. To know more, please read the interview with Xiaowan here.
