Peculiar 3D Glass Paintings by Xia Xiaowan


Chinese artist Xia Xiaowan employs multiple layers of tinted glass and colorful pencils to transform 2D paintings into 3D images which he calls “spatial paintings”. His spatial paintings appear almost holographic. As one walks around the installation, the image changes along each shift of perspective, blurring the line between painting and sculpture.
