incredible 3D images that pop off the page
created with just a pencil and paper
He’s a modern day master making incredible 3D images that pop off the page – armed only with a pencil and a piece of paper.
At just 20-years-old, Chilean artist Fredo is quickly captivating the online art world with his series of graphite sketches.
He is now planning to take his art to the streets in a bid to spread his fanbase from the virtual world to the real one.
How it all began: Fredo’s first picture of a butterfly, which led him to develop his technique
Busting through: An elephant seemingly charges its way through the paper
Fredo, whose real name is Wladimir Inostroza, learnt his startling technique purely by accident.
Drawing a butterfly whilst laid out on his bed, he realised the picture had been stretched out across the page.
On closer inspection he saw how the animal appeared to be floating, and that by chance he had used a method similar to one used by English 3D artist Julian Beever.
Scary: Spread across two pages, this series looks like a man is jumping off the paper
Out of the box: This picture looks like a puppet is being pulled out of the box
Down time: This man is waiting with an empty glass of wine
After adding in the shade with a set of charcoals, he took a photograph – and has never looked back.
With his own blog, thousands of fans on his Facebook page, and countless pages dedicated to his work, Fredo is now keen to expand on his talents and take his art to the streets of Santiago and beyond.
