Dutch artist Leon Keer has been getting attention in the art world recently for his fascinating and captivating 3 dimensional street art.
The most recent piece depicts a terracotta army made of lego emerging from the ground, it is situated in Saracota, Florida.
Using methods inspired by the 15th century artist Paolo Uccello, the pieces are three dimensional with the use of perspective. If looked at from the wrong angle the pieces appear to be out of proportion and blurred, but from the right one the pieces genuinely give the impression that they are three dimensional.
Using the Renaissance method that Keer employs, the piece is created from the position of where an observer would stand. The proportions of the terracotta army are planned with precision, using size and mathematics to trick the eye into seeing depth and distance.
