‘All you need is a pencil and something to draw on, and you can create something really magical’. This is the way Italian artist, Alessandro Diddi, would put it, or would describe what he does. He creates simple, yet fascinating 3D-sketches, tricking the human eye and mind into believing random inanimate sketches have come to live. Seemingly effortless, Alessandro Diddi, manages to let his sketches pop out of a piece of paper underlining the three dimensional effect by ‘interacting’ with his drawings. He wants his drawings ‘to put across the message that the eye can trick the mind and make you believe that there are dimensions that are not really there.’ Although there is no specific message he is trying to get across through his sketches, he does find it important that people realize it is not necessary to consume a large amount of resources to achieve something interesting.
