The use of 3D technology is not just within films. In China, an artist is combining the technology with 3D paintings to present more vivid art.


Chinese 3D artist Qi Xinghua prides himself on being the first in the country to add an extra perspective to his paintings.

Perspective in his paintings is painstakingly calculated and he often visits the sites where his work is set to be shown beforehand to judge the space and lighting conditions.

He says the secret to his paintings lies in breaking people's traditional perception of artwork.

Qi Xinghua, 3D artist said "To put it in the simplest way, it's reversed vision, which is also called inverse-perspective. From our normal vision, nearby objects are big and far away ones are small. I use the opposite method to make far away objects big and close objects small. In this way, a two-dimensional painting turns three-dimensional."

Li says he has calculated three different formulas that can be applied on all paintings of varying sizes.
