You hear a lot of 3D movies, pictures and videos but have you heard of 3D paintings? Yes 3D paintings are now a very famous genre of modern art. Due to its realistic views and of course the originality it has now gathered the attraction of people all over the world. 3D art can be of different things but today we will see some amazing 3D paintings of Aquatic Animals. When you will see the below hand-made paintings at first view t will be hard for you to believe it as a painting but after seeing it minutely you will realize your mistake. But before seeing the creative works we will obviously like to say you about the creator here.
All the pictures collected below are drawn by a Singapore based artist and magician Keng Lye. He is working on 3D illusion since a very long time. He is famous for making three dimensional works of art with acrylics and epoxy resin which will be hard to believe as hand painted drawings. All his paintings look like photographs. Actually he followed the technique of famous Japanese painter Riusuke Fukahori. The characteristics of Lye’s paintings is that he can produce the three dimensional illusion of aquatic animals swimming in water. According to him it can be done by pouring resin into a bowl and painting on top of it by acrylics. Just imagine.
According to Keng Lye, “I started my first series in 2012 where all the illustrations were “flat” and depth was created using the layering of resin and acrylic over the different parts of the illustration. This year, I started on the octopus and it was purely an experiment; I just wanted to see whether I could push this technique to a higher level. After applying acrylic paint straight onto the resin, I incorporated a 3-D element in this instance; it was a small pebble for the ranchu and octopus. For the turtle, I used an egg shell for the turtle shell and acrylic paint for the rest of the finishing. The whole idea here was to give the art work an even more 3D effect therefore you can have a better view from any angle. I think there are still many other techniques to explore.”
Really after seeing all his artworks it will be hard to make difference between an original photograph and a handmade painting. So let’s get tricky with the paintings of talented Keng Lye.
