The Oregonian (is that even a word?) is a master of the trompe l’œil using vinyl and latex to crate mind-meltingly fascinating works which leap off the wall and immerse you in what feel like architect’s blueprints or some kind of Matrix-style code.
Just to keep us on our toes he does work with 3D materials occasionally, but it’s these extraordinary flat pieces which really dropped our jaws.
