Check out these incredible works of art by Beijing-based artist Xia Xianowan.
Each 'sculptural painting' consists of 14 to 30 glass panels painted on with special colored pencils and takes one to two months to complete... When viewed from different angles the paintings shift in an eire 3Dimensional holographic manner...
Xia Xiaowan’s goal has always been to explore, by means of expanded and diffracted viewpoints, a new and "true vision" which goes beyond the principles of physics. Since his early drawings, he restlessly pushed the boundaries of Western traditional realistic painting. His big breakthrough came in 2003. By creating "spatial paintings," Xiaowan broke through the two-dimensional plane and created three-dimensional artwork that essentially lives in mid-air.
