Modern art from everyday items
The distinctive artist of Bernard PRAS has actually started as a photographer and now deals with art from everyday objects. His oversized portraits consist of clothing, tools, toys, tires and many other objects that you can imagine. If you look at his artworks of very close, they look rather than a chaotic collection of odds and ends and old stuff. From a certain perspective and from a distance you can see the size of his art. This art form is known as Anamorphosis among the connoisseurs.
Bernard Pras was born in 1952 and studied at the Academy of fine arts in Toulouse. After twenty years of painting, the artist has found a new form of expression – art from everyday objects. A drawing is used as a basis and according to this design he collects objects with certain shape, color and texture even then. Then he slowly assembles the objects and through his camera he controlled, as is the effect from a distance. The anamorphic artworks are sometimes so great that they can fill an entire room. See video at the bottom, how much everything is done.
