Art And Writing That Instill A Sense Of Wonder

Wonder is the dynamo of the world. Wonder, imagination and inventiveness are the cornerstones of a meaningful life. Each helps to stimulate our mind to assure us of a fulfilling day, every day. I am an experienced author and visual artist keen about communication. My creations prompt people to look beyond what seems obvious, to think and to see outside of the box, and to open their mind to new emotions and dimensions
— Gianni A. Sarcone


I work with my heart but I am brutal honest with myself, as an artist I hate to justify my decisions. I often ask myself: “is this really the best you can do?”


I approach every creative project with the user end in mind: it should be appropriate to the context in which it will be used or enjoyed. I am a pragmatic dreamer!


I am always open to suggestions and updates when I am asked. I don't just create art or products... I like to be innovative and to share ideas with people who are able to develop them.


I put myself in the shoes of my publisher/agent/curator. Communication plays a huge role in my work, it is a great mean to build reciprocal confidence and respect.

I Am The Architect of Wonder

Is there really a boundary between visual art and writing? Both disciplines use signs and conventions to express a thought or a feeling. Visual art and writing are so connected that it is even possible to paint with words or write with light and colors! Both share an essential feature: communication. Nowadays, artistic manifestations are many and varied, crossing the disciplines of literature, the fine arts, and graphic design, in a fertile intersection of creative innovation.
My name is Gianni A. Sarcone, I am an international visual artist and author with decades of experience in the fields of optical art (op art) and visual creativity. Much of my art blurs the line between cognitive science and communication.

Major international galleries, publishers and agencies have appreciated, used and enjoyed my work to capture the attention and entertain people all around the world. I love to integrate my work with different disciplines and to apply it to all the aspects of our everyday life. All my work is intended to encourage people to look beyond what seems obvious and to open their mind to new emotions and dimensions.
I have written an extensive collection of books in several languages on brain training, critical thinking, visual art, and on the mechanism of vision. I also founded Archimedes' Lab Project™ [], a consulting network of experts specializing in developing creativity, with the goal to form and train the future creative minds, who will design the world of tomorrow.
In 2018, I won the prestigious Royal Society's Young People's Book Prize.

My Work

What I do

Books On Commission

I write non-fiction books on commission for international publishers and articles for educational or scientific magazines. My fields of expertise are: art, art education, creativity, vision, cognitive sciences, recreational mathematics.

Visual & Kinetic Art

I create contemporary and optic art. Most of my works are purchased by private collectors and cultural or commercial organizations throughout the world. Widely considered as a leading authority on visual perception, I specialize in optic and visual kinetic art. Some of my paintings have been used for murals or large format graphics.

New Concepts

I design objects that produce surprise and joy, when their true nature is revealed. Many of my creations relate to the interconnection between art, science and game. I create and develop games and activity boxes with esthetic qualities, that are also fun and challenging.

Art Licensing

I license my op art and photos for commercial and editorial use. I own the largest database of unique surreal photos, optical illusions and visual effects. My work is used by major publishers, advertising agencies, interior and fashion designers, and by a wide range of service and manufacturing companies.
