The Art of Junk

Artist Bernard Pras was born in 1952 in the south of France. After more than 20 years spent as a painter, and also a sculptor of recycled objects, Pras conceived in 1997, an astonishing form of expression, using photography as a basis for the creation of what amounts to a form of installation art. Pras’ work does not illustrate the painter’s art but the way the eyes view objects. In fact, brush and paint are replaced by the object itself. Bernard Pras' work is created using a technique called anamorphosis, which creates a distorted perspective requiring the viewer to occupy a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image.
