Bringing together his work and the historic structures, he is creating a unique 3D-like image that is taking the internet by storm!
Cataudella started this project in 2014 in Sicily and later toured through Europe to capture more such classic landmarks like the Colosseum in Rome, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and the Tower Bridge in London.

“The project is a combination of my passions for drawing, photography, and travel. The goal is to show beauty in a different way, using only my skills, creativity, and imagination.” He said, adding “I never studied illustration, architecture, or other related disciplines. My works are the result of hard work, passion, and a desire to improve myself.”
