François Abelanet creates the world's largest 3D street art piece
Lyon - JUL 10, 2013
The artist François Abelanet work has revealed the largest 3D street art in the world in Place Bellecour in Lyon, France. The work, which will enter the Guinness Book of Records, covers a total of 6.000m2.

With an extreme attention to detail characteristic of the impressive optical illusions created by the artist, the work represents four different surreal universes. Each piece in the work is a giant anamorphic, ie a reversible deformation of an image produced by an optical illusion. From the point of view established by Abelanet, the form of the work is proportionate and clearly revealed, showing the 3D perspective effect created by the elements of the scene.

The artist explains that by visiting the work the audience can see that "different creations will emerge without being able to see the trick. Because there is no trick: an anamorphosis is the result of very precise calculations. And also a bit of imagination."

Abelanet's work was commissioned by Renault, as part of the launch of the new Renault trucks.
