People have used visual illusions for years in order to trick the eye into thinking that it is seeing something that is not really there. Magicians use it all the time but it can also be seen in a very special type of art. This 3-D street art is something that is gaining in popularity and when you see what they have created through this video, you will have to agree that it is an art form unlike any other. Admittedly, you’re not likely to see this type of 3-D street art hanging on a wall in a museum, but [More]
Many of us have seen the three-dimensional street art that is popular at many local events and festivals. When viewed from the proper angle it really takes on an entirely different feel and it may even make you a little bit dizzy, as it appears as if you are standing on the edge of a precipice. Of course, it is just an illusion, but it is one that is quite convincing. You may have seen this type of art before and perhaps you have stood on the edge or had someone take a picture of you interacting with it. What [More]
We have all seen the work of street artists, and have marveled over the ability of them to trick the eye into thinking that you are looking at a three dimensional scene.

Most of us are familiar with many of the famous art pieces, such as Michelangelo painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel or perhaps Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

Talented individuals who have the ability to create artwork often tend to work on their own. They may hide themselves away in a studio somewhere or perhaps even paint in a small room in their home, and nobody typically sees them, they only see the work that they do.

When you look at a talented artist doing a three-dimensional street art piece, it can really be a source of wonder. In many cases, these pieces of art are extremely large and it is not out of the question for the artist to work on them for hours or perhaps even days at a time.
