Awtar Singh Virdi

Jamshedpur-based Awtar Singh Virdi , is one of the rare practitioners of ANAMORPHOSIS.

He owns a Guinness Book of World Records(2003) and Limca Book
of Records(2004) for creating the world's largest anamorphic painting(10ft * 10ft) of the
then US President George W. Bush.

Here is a couple of his works:

He first began creating the artworks when he was 18 after discovering he could draw distorted images using just a pen lid. It happened when he saw a brand new shiny Mercedes Benz parked in front of him and his friends. It was so polished it looked like a mirror. They were having fun by seeing their own distorted images on those mirrored surfaces when, suddenly, Awtar was struck with an idea.

He went running into his room, took out a piece of white card and a golden pen cap, placed them on the table and started drawing so the image could only be seen in the refection rather than on the paper.
After a few trials Awtar achieved it, and has never stopped since.
