The Skewed, Anamorphic Sculptures and Engineered Illusions of Jonty Hurwitz

Facebook, Saatchi profile, and Youtube

Some figurative sculptors carve their artworks from unforgiving stone while others carefully morph the human form from soft blocks of clay, but artist begins with over a billion computer calculations before spending months considering how to materialize his warped ideas using perspex, steel, resin, or copper.

Born in Johannesburg in 1969, Hurwitz now lives and works in London where he is somewhat of a renaissance man, focusing both on his artwork and micro-loan website Wonga which he co-founded in 2007. His anamorphic sculptures rely on scans of objects (hands, faces, frogs) that are then distorted digitally and fabricated, but when placed in front of a cylindrical mirror the projected reflection reveals the original object. Still, other works deal with pixelated or sliced human forms that are only viewable from a single perspective.

Please, if you leave a comment: The weird work of artists deserves respect. Even if it disturbs you or surprises you, refrain from any opinion, if you are not a connoisseur in the arts. Please, keep your prejudices, misinterpretations or non-constructive remarks, as well as that a narrow mind or manichaean. Opt for an objective analysis of the artwork and an understanding of the author's intentions. Thank you!
