10 artists, creating optical illusions

Contemporary artists who know how to move the viewer into a different reality.

Kumi Yamashita
The Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita, known worldwide as a master of light and shadow. With the most simple tools - for example, sheets of paper, cut out the letters and numbers - Kumi creates unique works, transforming chaos into an organized procedure for "Shadow - a great way of self-expression for people who believe more in the volatility of the world than in its permanence." So, crumpled sheets of paper are transformed into people's faces, and the "graphic" portraits of people of different races on closer inspection turn out to be made of the names and numbers written on bank cards.
