Felice Varini is a Swiss artist known for his large-scale anamorphic installations in architectural and urban spaces, such as streets, buildings, public monuments, … both indoors and outdoors. Starting his practice in 1972, Varini is interested in the thematic of representation and the viewer’s perception. Varini’s artworks are intended to be seen both as fragments and as a whole as the comprehension of his works can be altered according to the viewers’ vantage point. Playing with both simple geometric forms and colors, the artist’s work inhabits and coexists with the space it is set in to give his paintings a spectacular 3-dimensional effect. Being celebrated as one of the most interesting artist of his generation, Felice Varini has exhibited worldwide.
