These distorted architectural paintings were done by a Netherlands-based artist C├ęcile van Hanja. They're infused with an incredible amount of color and abstraction that focuses on different perspectives. His use of shape and space creates a sense of calmness and a feeling of being alone and at peace. She intends to avoid a lot of detail and instead concentrates on the relationship between geometric shapes and space.

This creates an illusion of distorted figures within the architecture being depicted as the eye leads to a vanishing point. Vibrant colors are also used as a distraction to see the large space enabled within the background. These distorted architectural paintings make quite the impression when viewed from a distance as the artist intends to capture and take the viewer into an open concept colorful dimension.
