Michael Murphy is an American artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, author of site-specific installations and anamorphic sculptures, two-dimensional illusions in three-dimensional space.

Murphy became famous during the American presidential elections of 2008, after creating the first portrait of Barack Obama, then taken up by Shepard Fairey in the book Art for Obama: Designing Manifest Hope and the Campaign for Change.

Murphy’s works look chaotic and immersive, they are three-dimensional compositions that, from a particular point of view, reveal perfectly ordered images. The elements used to compose them, from random things turn into necessary, precise, perfectly contextualized.

Some of the works of the sculptor are part of the Perceptual Shift series. Black and white images are produced using floating elements on a white surface. The installation environment becomes the canvas on which to create the image. When the seemingly chaotic array of objects suddenly aligns to form an image, the work creates a perceptual shift in the viewer. The three-dimensional space changes and becomes flat.

Once the illusion of space is perceived, another illusion is revealed inside, the graphics one.
