Maxim Wakultschik’s handmade 3D objects are based on exact and complex calculations. They are compressed to the point on the computer so that the convex curvature creates a hypnotic effect of depth. The frosted glass blurs the recessed sides of the box, enhancing this effect. Thus, if the viewer only slightly changes his or her position in relation to the work, the portrait appears like a hologram. The size of the portrait shown resembles the real head size, so that the picture acquires a sculptural effect.
Maxim Wakultschik, born in Minsk in 1973, studied free art at the Düsseldorf Art Academy under Beate Schiff and Jannis Kounellis. His works can be seen regularly in exhibitions and at art fairs around the globe. He has received numerous awards for his artistic work. Wakultschik lives and works in Düsseldorf.
