This Optical Illusion Art Will Expand Your Mind
Stare long enough and you'll figure it out.
The Waterfall (Turning River Street Into a River), Edgar Müller
Müller’s 2007 artwork is both a play on words and an anamorphic street painting in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, where the viewer needs to stand in the right spot to get the correct perspective and illusion.
Teatro alla Scala, Liu Bolin
Now you see me, now you don’t: This 2010 artwork hides a patron among the plush seats.
Siete Punto Uno (7.1), John Pugh
Los Gatos, California suffered a severe earthquake in 1990; the two jaguars in the optical illusion art refer to the city’s name (“the cats,” in Spanish) and to Tepeyollotl, the Aztec god of earthquakes, echoes, and jaguars.
Where Are We?, François Abélanet
The geese are perhaps less confused by this 2010 anamorphic art illusion, as viewed from the front in the Parc de Bagatelle, Paris.
Rembrandts with Rembrandts, Julian Beever
This 1992 trompe-l’oeil pavement drawing was created with anamorphic technique, where the illusion includes a box of pastels that appears to have depth.
