Fantastic! Pras's Uncommon Anamorphic Sculptures Made Out Of Everyday Objects

This is the work of an artist named Pras. He makes unusual but pretty funky sculptures out of "recovered objects" which to me, sometimes, is a PC terminology for garbage.

"Pras conceived in 1997, an astonishing form of expression, using photography as a basis for the creation of what amounts to a form of installation art.

Pras’s work does not illustrate the painter’s art but the way the eye views an object. In fact, brush and paint are replaced by the object itself.

By anamorphosis he creates a picture in relief and gives birth to portraits by randomly accumulating common objects.

Pras sets up his camera at a well-defined angle so that the objects themselves merge and a portrait appears from this bric-à-brac - the work of art is accomplished !
The photograph is the only remaining trace of this ephemeral work."



  1. Hi,

    These are excellent.
    They remind the work of Zac Freeman.

    Kind regards,


  2. Hi Jose. Don't know Zac Freeman's work yet but I have a feeling I will like his stuff since I find Pras's stuff fascinating.

  3. hi, may i have his full name ? i can't really find anymore of his work or even his artistic profile online
