Incredible Illusions, an exhibition by internationally acclaimed 3D artist Kurt Wenner, is on at the V&A Waterfront’s Watershed until Sunday July 23, from 10am to 7pm, daily.
Commonly known as 3D interactive pavement art, the pieces on exhibition are completely interactive and educational – a concept very different from the general idea that is given at conventional museums of no touching, no photographing.
Wenner was inspired by anamorphic perspective, but had to invent an entirely new geometry in order to create his astonishing 3D pavement art images. He produced his first commissioned mural at the age of 16 and within a year he was earning his living as a graphic artist.
The exhibition includes an educational zone that shares the history of pavement art and how geometry plays a pivotal role in 3D painting, immersive and interactive art pieces.
To conclude your experience there is a “Art Jamming” zone where visitors can learn the basics of 3D painting and express themselves. The paint used is nontoxic but beware it is near impossible to remove from clothing. You will therefore be provided with a complimentary apron.
