This trick artwork was created by Kurt Wenner for Universal Studios Japan’s 10th anniversary. The work features Spiderman, and in addition to creating a 3D effect with Kurt’s use of anamorphic perspective, this work also leverages 3D Stereoscopic effect (only viewable when wearing Color Code 3D blue and amber glasses).

The work itself is approximately 50 feet long and 20 feet wide, and incorporates original vertical artwork as well as existing elements of Universal Studios into the artwork (the background New York Library set that was used in the film Ghostbusters).
