Felice Varini is a Swiss artist recognized by his street art and artistic installations.
He visualized anamorphic projections designed to be viewed from a single location creating an uncanny optical illusion. Varini is fascinated by architecture as backdrop for his artwork and seeks unusual spaces with varying planes of depth for his installations which can grow to be quite dramatic.
The geometric patterns are installed in both interior and exterior spaces.
Sections of paint of different colors are applied across rooftops, walls and road surfaces, appearing in a seemingly random pattern when seen from the street level. The full effect only becomes clear when viewed from a specific point.

“The painted form achieves its coherence when the viewer stands at the vantage point,” said Varini. “When he moves out of it, the work meets with space generating infinite vantage points on the form.”
“My field of action is architectural space and everything that constitutes such space,” said Varini. “These spaces are and remain the original media for my painting. I work “on site” each time in a different space and my work develops itself in relation to the spaces I encounter.”
Varini has created installations in public spaces around the world.
