Patrick Hughes
(1939 - Present)

Patrick Hughes is a British artist working in London. He is the creator of "reverspective", an optical illusion on a 3-dimensional surface where the parts of the picture which seem farthest away are actually physically the nearest.

Hughes' early works were often playful, putting things back to front or squashing them flat. He later went on to invent the reverspective movement which has spawned many copiers of his works. This movement involved creating a never before seen canvas which would give the impression that the painting moved as the viewer did. I first saw this phenomenon in Flowers Cork Street in 1999 and was enamored with the illusion, just as anyone who sees one of these paintings is.
