Very Urban, Very Lenticular

Very Urban, Very Lenticular

We have been strolling through the different cities of the world and have found that the lenticular is a strong trend. You can find it in streets and buildings around the world and legions of artists and graffiti decorate the street furniture lenticular motif. Fences, blinds, trellises, etc. All these elements serve all these artists canvas.

Want to take a ride with us? Started by Germany, here we have a fabulous group of artists dedicated to decorate both urban pieces as well as charged and by own choice too, his name is Zebrating.

The pieces are developed with meticulous work scheme that passes through the measurement and calculation of the pieces, developing these through different software design to be printed and then glued in place just so they can be viewed in a proper way not degenerate into an aberrant level. So have decorated bridges, canopies, shopping centers and public buildings.

Here is a small sample of their work. It's amazing!

Here you can see how they work in action.

They also collaborate with NGOs doing work of a social nature. In the following link you can see one of his works for Amnesty International entitled "Making the Invisible Visible" playing with the concept that social problems like this are invisible or visible depending on the angle in which you look and incite viewer to take the right "angle".

In Egypt we find Nemo, his work revolves around the social demand and problems of their country. In the following link we see how he decorated one of the bridges of Mansoura.

The scope of Dr. D is the cosmopolitan London. This artist likes to play both the image lenticular as text, since due to a mistake when he began making these works he realized that some words could change meaning depending on the viewing angle because some letters could be hidden.

Also in this city we stumbled upon the work of artist ROA embodying their designs in metal shutters of the city. Uses the method of the double angle bracket to create a work composed of two observables images according to the viewing angle.

We go to Paris. This city is the canvas for the artist Ludo, who creates works in black and whithe with touches of bright color. He also plays with the double image that unfolds as we look in one direction or another. His work is very recognizable and has thousands of followers worldwide.

In Manhattan, New York, we discovered this fantastic store of Sephora which was commissioned by the chain artists David Ellis, Maya Hayuk, Yuri Shimojo and SASU who used lenticular panels to create a large mural entitled "Transformation of beauty" . The mural is composed of holographic images that change as we move.

And here ends our guided tour through urban lenticular art worldwide. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we do.

If you want you can send us photographic material of works that you have seen in cities and which I have drawn attention powerfully. But above all, keep your eyes open and enjoy all the beauty that we provide to the cities.

See you at the next post! ;)
