Description:
Anamorphosis Street Art is when images are drawn in such a way to give them three dimensionality when viewing from the correct angle. It's amazing !!!
This deformed image would appear in its true shape when viewed in some "unconventional" way
Expanded Description:
An anamorphosis is a deformed image that appears in its true shape when viewed in some "unconventional" way. Leonardo da Vinci and other artists were trying to figure out how to draw in 3-D (another optical illusion trick) when they discovered something awesome.

"The ANAMORPHOS"

"ana" means "again" and "morph" means "form"

In past centuries, anamorphic designs were used as "secret images", sometimes to hide erotic drawings, sometimes images of a politically-sensitive nature.

A distorted or monstrous projection or representation of an image on a plane or curved surface, which, when viewed from a certain point, or as reflected from a curved mirror or through a polyhedron, appears regular and in proportion; a deformation of an image. In one common form of anamorphosis---usually termed "oblique"--- the unconventionality arises from the fact that the image must be viewed from a position that is very far from the usual in-front and straight-ahead position from which we normally expect images to be looked at. In another common form---sometimes termed "catoptric"---the image must be seen reflected in a distorting mirror (typical shapes being cylindrical, conical and pyramidal). Today's Artists have taken this art one step further and created Anamorphic designs on our worlds streets & walls.
