Peter Kogler, an internationally renowned Austrian artist who lives and works in Vienna, has hypnotized the world with his latest psychedelic, optical illusion installations at the ING Art Center in Brussels. Using paint and projections, he makes simple galleries, lobbies and transit centers look distorted, warped and twisted.
Kogler transforms the simple white walls and flat floors of galleries, transit stations and ordinary lobbies by using simple, intersecting lines and bold graphics. Through busy, sketch-like visuals, Kogler plays with space to challenge perspective and alter existing architectural elements—walls bend, floors rise, and ceilings curve.
His engaging, mind-blowing designs invite viewers to interact with their surroundings and perceive the surrounding environment in a new way – if they don’t play with your mind first!
Kogler’s most recent pieces were on view at the ING Art Center in Brussels and at ERES-Stiftung in Munich earlier this year.
