Dizzying Panoramic Polyhedral Perspective Drawings by Rorik Smith


As lomographers, we are all lovers of breath-taking panoramic photos. But what about panoramic sketches--dizzying, disorienting, dumbfounding panoramic drawings, at that? That's not very easy to visualize, we understand, so step right up, read on, and be amazed!

Now being dubbed as possibly the next M.C. Escher, artist and draughtsman Rorik Smith has been making these amazing works of art. Referring to them as polyhedral panoramic perspective drawings, Rorik creates these mind-boggling artworks on-site without the help of photographic references or even digital manipulation.

Take a look at some of his work below:

It’s admittedly kind of difficult to comprehend how he makes these dizzying, disorienting, dumbfounding drawings, but the folks over at This is Colossal have an explanation: he “seems to introduce polarized coordinates at random locations in each drawing and then bends the perspective of the surrounding areas to match.”

Oh, and in case you were wondering who M.C. Escher is, he’s a Dutch graphic artist best known for his mathematically-inspired creations featuring impossible constructions, tessellations, and explorations of infinity. Yes, mind-boggling artworks, just like Rorik Smith’s.
