DeChirico was from Italy.
He was the father of Metaphysical painting. De Chirico produced
paintings of dreams that seemed real. He painted realistic places
and objects but from a strange point of view. Using strange
lighting effects was another way he painted differently. He
influenced Surrealist art. As a painter, he was painting virtual
worlds that the viewer became part of. Using perspective was one
of the ways he would pull the viewer into the painting. His
backgrounds were very interesting, with few objects in the
painting themselves. He painted this way for only about 10 years.
Geometry and perspective are two elements artists use to create 3-D virtual
worlds. If you look at his paintings closely, you will be able to
see the textures that he used in his paintings. Graphic 3-D
designers use textures, backgrounds, scenes, and unusual lighting
to create their virtual worlds.
