Carlos Alberto GH, a Mexican artist, situated in Guadalajara, masters in awry street art portraying all types of unreal images that seem life-like when eyed from just the precise angle.
From birds and reptiles apparently reaching out of walls to whales floating high on the urban sidewalks, street artist Carlos Alberto GH can turn anything he can imagine into a jaw-dropping optical illusion. A previous archaeological restorer specializing in Mayan sites and artifacts, the 31-year-old artist now devotes all his time and energy to anamorphic art and comprehensive street murals.
Carlos Alberto was enraptured with the arts at the beginning of life, devoting most of his childhood drawing and painting, also participating in multiple art contests. But it was the street art – anamorphic art in specific – that made him retire from his professional career as a restorer and center only on his passion.
The young artist was immediately attracted to anamorphic art because it helped interact with people. Observed from just the correct angle, an amazing artwork gives the illusion that the portrayed images are exactly in front of your eyes and let you pose as the fraction of the scene.
Even though Carlos Alberto GH has just been creating 3D street art for a seemingly short time, he has been involved in international street painting and mural exhibitions worldwide, ranging from the United States to Russia and Spain.
