"I know from experience that the methods artists use have a profound direct and
instant influence on the nature of the work they produce." David Hockney, Artist/Writer
The Perplexi ® is a visual aid to understanding dimensional concepts like foreshortening,perspective, and proportion. It is a modern adaptation of earlier inventions developed around the 15th Century. Leon Batista Alberti created the "Alberti's Veil." The grid concept was used by many artists, including Leonardo do Vinci [1452-1519], Jacopo do Pontormo [1492-1557], Michelangelo Caravaggio [1565?-1609] Albrecht Durer [1471-1528], and many other artists during and after the Renaissance.
