3D Images Art that Pop Off The Page...

Fredo is a modern day master making incredible 3D images that pop off the page - armed only with a pencil and a piece of paper. At just 20-years-old, Chilean artist Fredo is quickly captivating the online art world with his series of graphite sketches. He is now planning to take his art to the streets in a bid to spread his fanbase from the virtual world to the real one.

How it all began: Fredo's first picture of a butterfly, which led him to develop his technique


Fredo, whose real name is Wladimir Inostroza, learnt his startling technique purely by accident.
Drawing a butterfly whilst laid out on his bed, he realised the picture had been stretched out across the page. On closer inspection he saw how the animal appeared to be floating, and that by chance he had used a method similar to one used by English 3D artist Julian Beever. After adding in the shade with a set of charcoals, he took a photograph - and has never looked back. With his own blog, thousands of fans on his Facebook page, and countless pages dedicated to his work, Fredo is now keen to expand on his talents and take his art to the streets of Santiago and beyond.

Busting through: An elephant seemingly charges its way through the paper



Scary: Spread across two pages, this series looks like a man is jumping off the paper


Out of the box: This picture looks like a puppet is being pulled out of the box


Down time: This man is waiting with an empty glass of wine



Picture frame: The photograph is handing Fredo a pencil in this image


Helping hand: Bionic and human joints combine in this picture


Pathway: This sketch looks like an intricate wood carving
