Merging Painting and Sculpture with 3D-Paintings (11pics)

Artist Shintaro Ohata has created a line of work that when first viewed appears to be an oil painting on canvas... but upon further inspection, the work of art is in 3-dimensions and can be viewed in multiple angles... 
You have to really see them to fully understand and appreciate them. 

-Check 'em out below: 

Shintaro Ohata is an artist who depicts little things in everyday life like scenes of a movie and captures all sorts of light in his work with a unique touch: convenience stores at night, city roads on rainy day and fast-food shops at dawn etc. His paintings show us ordinary sceneries as dramas. He is also known for his characteristic style; placing sculptures in front of paintings, and shows them as one work, a combination of 2-D and 3-D world. He says that it all started from when he wondered "I could bring the atmosphere or dynamism of my paintings with a more different way if I place sculptures in front of paintings". Many viewers tend to assume that there is a light source set into his work itself because of the strong expression of lights in his sculpture.

This is a good visual appreciation training for our eyes. Also, it could help us develop our own sense of art assessment, I mean not every has the keen eyes for arts, right?
