To experience the art of Felice Varini is something out of the ordinary and rather spectacular. At first it all looks like geometric and abstract shapes dancing over different landscapes and buildings, but if you move in a certain direction you will notice that the shapes are starting to make sense and suddenly they will flatten into colorful 2D shapes. The Swiss artist has managed to use large areas and geometry to make abstract art that almost looks photoshopped and unreal.
He thinks it’s great when people find that right spot to stand in so his artwork makes sense, but he doesn’t get disappointed if they don’t, because it’s still art no matter how you see it. Varini has done several installations like this and has put lot of effort and work to it so the results would look perfect.
