Today the Department of Awesome Anamorphic Artwork offers up a wonderfully geeky creation by street artists Leon Keer and Remko van Schaik on the campus of the EPLF technical institute in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The duo spent six days working on this amazing depiction of a girl playing a 3D version of Space Invaders in an aerial arcade. Look closely, that’s not just crazy vintage arcade carpet beneath her dangling feet. It’s the very distant ground. We were never much good at the game, but we’d still love to try playing a version like this.
When we asked Keer what he found most challenging about this particular project, he said, “It was creating the Space Invaders. To get the right geometrical shape of every Invader and in good proportion with the other Invaders took a lot of calculations and a good amount of concentration.
The painting measures 150 square meters (1600 square feet) and only makes sense when viewed from one particular side. If you happen to be in the neighborhood of Lausanne, this fantastic street painting will be view through April 10, 2014.
