Striking Three Dimensional Glass Paintings

The amazing artwork showcased in this post consist of layers upon layers of glass, each and every one of which has been painted on.

Only when the glass is viewed in the correct order and from the right position is the true image really seen.

The post features two incredibly talented artists: American David Spriggs who focuses on explosive work, featuring fireworks, storms and blast like images.

The second artist is Chinese Xia Xiao Wan who takes a completely different and more disturbing approach to his work, with all of his 3D glass paintings featuring distorted and deformed figures.

    Glass Paintings have always intrigued me, it’s like sculpting in segments.
