3D Street Art Illusion, 2

Although we may be comfortable with the thought that everything is as we see it in the world, that is rarely the case. As a matter of fact, there may be times when we see something quite different than reality, and that is especially true when it comes to optical illusions. There are many different types of optical illusions but one of them is known as forced perspective. This technique uses the illusion to make an object appear closer, further away, smaller or larger.

In part, it is your perspective that is being used when you see these 3-D art optical illusions that are drawn on roads and sidewalks. Quite simply, these are the best of the best and they are going to trick the eyes into seeing a three-dimensional object, even though it is drawn on a two-dimensional surface. By manipulating your visual perception, it really does a good job at fooling you completely.

This type of art has been around for well over a century, although it has just gained popularity recently. People will travel for hundreds or even thousands of miles to attend a festival where street art is taking place and if you ever have the opportunity to do so, it is well worth the trip.
