Enter the world of visual illusion! Master artist Sandro Del-Prete is your guide through this mysterious, compelling landscape. His world-class works appeared in the best-selling Masters of Deception, revealing a style both uniquely poetic and personal. Like M.C. Escher, Del-Prete has devised a universe rich in impossible objects, optical deceptions, double perspectives, transformations, anamorphosis, and a good deal more. In this truly astonishing volume of images old and new, he presents a complete range of his art, from lithographed reproductions to oil paintings and sculptures. Look closely inside a cage with two lovebirds to see all the elements merge into the shape of a girl’s face. A series of seemingly endless towers pays homage to Escher. Expressive text accompanies each picture, opening a window into the work and illuminating Del-Prete’s artistic choices.
