French artist known as Shaka creates amazing three-dimensional paintings.
He sculpts the shapes of familiar objects directly on the canvas and covers them with layers of paint to create the desired 3D effect.

The first one is kind of frightening… but in a good way. Would love to see this in real life

this is so great to look at!
Looks like they are part of this world!! Truely amazing! Unbelievable!
these are totally lame. So commercial and gimmicky
That is so cool. I can imagine a world where a lot of people make art in three dimensions. We could call it sculpture or something.
What isnt 3D these days!
would LOVE to have one of this

Truly inspirational comic art.

Well… it’s really more sculpture than painting, but still done pretty well.

great work… very strong… love the use of colour and 3d dimensional effect

Crazy style. I kind of like the interpretative implications from it, like how we’re all sort of a mix of ourselves, a violent but sometimes melodious of all our different mes in a single mind. Anyway, that’s what it made me think about. That, and I’m always a fan of color. Good work. Cheers.

That’s a cool idea, but I really don’t understand his subject matter. It just doesn’t seem to have a deep meaning, and just be for the purpose of “looking cool”, which I guess is okay, but it makes me pretty indifferent to it.

This guy was the art teacher in my highschool in france haha

It’s an interesting technique, but it doesn’t “look like” 3D… it IS 3D. There’s a skill in making 2D images look like 3D when they aren’t… less skill in making 3D images look 3D, n’est-ce pas?

wo0ow this very very go0od !!!

I’m blind in my left eye, and I’ve been like this since I was 5 (8 ago years now), and I’ve never been able to see 3D. This is the closest thing I’ve gotten to 3D… Thank you so much for this experience. :)

This is a cool concept, but most of these photos are at the worst possible angle to show off the subject matter. Straight on shots abolish the 3D effect.

Very unique perspectives! It’s like they’re popping out at you. Very great handle on 3D.

… I can’t honestly say I don’t like these to much. the 3rd one is cool, but other than that most of them look like someone threw up every color of the rainbow on to them. Plus yes the whole “real 3d” thing isn’t very impressive to me, it’s much more difficult to make a 2d image look 3d then just make a 3d structure. Plus there is a huge lack of variety in the paintings, they all are the same pretty much a person or group of persons looking overwhelmed or angry… These need more variety and more use of principles and elements of design as well

FILTER yes it’s well done , and neat

Jun 17th, 2012
wow, thats really cool, I wonder when this will start becoming graffiti, it looks really cool though.

Amazing as paintings by themselves let alone as a sculpture.superb.

Quite nice but I agree with @Bryan.

To be honest, I don’t see what the three dimension component adds to the image. As a painter, the illusion of 3 dimension and exhibiting different perspectives in 2d comes natural to me, (relatively). Working in the third dimension is very difficult for me. I wouldn’t dismiss the work for being 3d. But what is the point? I guess I would have to see it in person. As far as the images as a whole, it’s not earth shattering. I love painting and experimentation but gumic, not so much.
