Kogler's installations are monochromatic, wavy and grid lines, and pipes that make you feel you are stuck in a virtual world.
Artists love to mesmerize people with mind-bending optical illusions and Austrian Peter Kogler is a master of it. His 30-year career has seen him use the power of computer generated media. His work merges between art displays that turn into a step in virtual reality.
Kohler doesn’t just want art lovers to just look at a piece of sculpture or something in a frame. He wants to envelop people into his work, becoming part of the his exhibitions. His installations have been in major galleries in Austria, Croatia, Turkey, and Belgium to name a few.
As cool as his work is, those suffering from vertigo may want to step away.

Kogler is considered the most famous contemporary artist of his generation.
His work is displayed at the ING Art Center in Brussels to coincide with the museum's and the artist's 30th anniversary.
