Kurt Wenner, the internationally acclaimed 3D artist and inventor of this fun and spectacular type of artwork as seen on pavements around the world, will be opening his “Incredible Illusions” exhibition on 4 April 2017 at the V&A Waterfront Watershed. It will close on 23 July 2017.
Commonly known as 3D interactive pavement art, the pieces on exhibition are completely interactive and educational – a concept very different from the general idea that is given at conventional museum of no touching, no photographing. In fact we encourage you to take pictures of your experience and share on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Wenner was inspired by anamorphic perspective, but had to invent an entirely new geometry in order to create his astonishing 3D pavement art images. Kurt Wenner produced his first commissioned mural at the age of sixteen and within a year he was earning his living as a graphic artist. He attended both Rhode Island School of Design and Art Center College of Design, before working for NASA. While at NASA Wenner worked as an advanced scientific illustrator, creating conceptual paintings of future space projects and extraterrestrial landscapes.
After participating in countless festivals, Wenner returned to fine art painting on commission and also created sculptures, decorative stucco relief, ceramic murals, architectural designs, and numerous images for publicity and advertising.
Kurt Wenner’s latest creation is his book Asphalt Renaissance, which documents the history of pavement art and his role in transforming it from a dying tradition to a dynamic multi-dimensional art form.
The exhibition includes an educational zone that shares the history of Pavement Art and how geometry plays a pivotal role 3D painting, immersive and interactive art pieces. To conclude your experience there is a “Art Jamming” zone where visitors can learn the basics of 3D painting and express themselves. The paint used is nontoxic but beware it is near impossible to remove from clothing. To assist we will provide a complimentary apron.
