We're down to the last few in our editions of amazing optical illusion prints by Milan based artistic duo Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla (a.k.a Carnovsky). Using red, green and blue filters and a special RGB printing technique Carnovsky have created a series of prints that reveal secret images; when viewed through the opposing colour filter, layers of illustration in the prints come to the foreground, with the rest of the imagery becoming almost invisible, MAGIC!
Carnovsky, La Selva, Limited Edition of 20, RGB Print, 75 x 110 cm, £870 unframed, £1250 framed
As well as being beautiful stand alone pieces, the 'La Selva' series of prints have three hidden images. When viewed through a red filter you will see all the creatures of the daytime such as monkeys, a pelican, a toucan and hares, use the green filter and you will see the plants and foliage of the animals' habitat, the blue filter reveals all the nocturnal creepy crawlies and underwater creatures including spiders, alligators, bats and lizards. Available in two colourways, the paler 'La Selva' and the darker 'La Selva Notturno', we're down to the last few in the edition of each of these prints, so please do get in touch if you'd like one!
