Through the looking glass
This edition consists of both a physical lenticular print and an electronic download. This edition contains one hundred GIFs. The images seem to draw you into the screen.
Most images are available in both portrait and landscape mode…
Some of the images seem to suck you into the screen, others seem to show you strange creatures that you find on the other side
For the first time on The File Arts the images come out of the screen into the real world, but that does not mean they lose their seduction to the depths, or that they stop moving. Using Lenticular printing: a technology in which lenticular lenses (a technology that is also used for 3D displays) are used to produce printed images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles. The prints are approximately A4, and each one is unique! Only one will be made for every GIF in this edition. So you will truly own a unique one-off piece of art.
You can see more examples of the print in this video:
Through the looking glass. Is it real or is it a virtual image? It is both!

At the moment I think about animation, dream animation, learn animation and make animation. I always wanted to be an artist/animator. In the school I’ve always preferred drawing characters to the actual learning. Animation education in Ukraine almost doesn’t exist, so had I chose psychology as my major degree. At the time I was more interested in learning about myself and humans in general. I’ve learned a lot from books and teachers about tons of different interesting stuff but when it came to the actual psychoteraphetic practice I’ve understood that I didn’t want to do it at all. All I wanted was to draw. To draw a lot and every single day. Those days I was inspired by the underground comics of Robert Crumb and the graphic style of Charles Burns. Than Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring inspired me to become an artist. When I saw the mesmerizing works of Adam Beckett it was exactly what I wanted to do in animation – an endless, infinite, transcendental animation. My recent series of GIFs and drawings are heavily inspired by psychedelics. I like to think of my works as Adventure Time on LSD. I fill every my work with my own experienced feelings and emotions. In my experiments with animation my main focus is on the repetitive movement of the figurative morphing shapes. Most of all I like to make multi-layered compositions that push the boundaries of this technique and have a psychedelic vibe in them. By pushing the limits of art I push myself to do my best and to evolve naturally through this process.
