Unbelievable 3D Drawings (16 pieces)

These three-dimensional pencil drawings by Chilean artist Fredo are absolutely mind-blowing! The 17-year-old prodigy draws objects that look like they're about to jump off the page! In fact, by taking pictures of his art at just the right angle, it's hard to differentiate what's real and what's not.

Though there is no doubt that Fredo has been inspired by artists who have come before him, such as M.C. Escher, Fredo's art definitely has a modern twist. Some of his extremely detailed drawings even feature creepy goblins holding physical objects like a lighter or reaching out of the page for a soda can. To be able pull this off, this gifted teenager not only has a powerful imagination but an extreme amount of patience and a crazy amount of talent.

I caught up with Fredo to ask him a few questions about his work:

At what age did you start to draw?
I've drawn all my life, but the "climax" was in 2005. When i was 15, I started to ask myself things about life and space.

Who are some of the other artists you are inspired by?
I like Beksinski, Arcimboldo, Rembrandt, Alex Grey, and, of course M.C. Escher. He's a great source of inspiration. I'm also inspired by other types of artists such as musicians. Tool, Sigur Rós, and Explosions in the Sky are just some examples. To me, music is necessary.

How long does each piece take?
It depends. Sometimes 30 minutes, sometimes one month. Time is gold but the satisfaction of seeing a finished drawing is the most important.

Is there any advice you'd give to other artists?
Everything is possible with a pencil in your hands, the real world is smaller than the imaginary. And, of course, have fun and do it with love.

Thanks for the interview, Fredo! We're truly amazed by your talent.
