‘Artistic’ Optical illusions

Art at its Best

So, what’s considered artistic? Define it… … …
It’s ok, STOP. Let’s welcome our best friend, GOOGLE.

Artistic: having or revealing natural creative skill.

Optical illusions can be artistic as well, where it reveals creativity. Take a look at this picture.

How many legs are there?

How many legs are there?

Initially, I thought that all the legs, be it white or black, were heels. It took quite a while before I realised otherwise – The “white legs” facing upwards are probably those of women’s while the “black legs” facing downwards are those of men’s.

Anamorphic Optical illusions

Anamorphic: gradual evolution from one type of organism to another

As I logged into WordPress, one blog which I was following posted “Anamorphic Optical Illusion Murals by Ella and Pitr”, I guessed it was ‘good stuff’ and clicked it.



It did not disappoint me. These two were the ones which I felt were more outstanding and able to bring out the element of ‘art’ in them. The first one is rather self-explanatory, stairs as the setting, while the second one seems a little bit more tricky. But I think it is two rooms separated by a wall with two ‘n-shaped’ windows in the middle. Nevertheless, both are simply great optical illusions. Credits to eMORFES for posting. You can find more of such illusions at eMORFES’s wordpress.

Chalk Drawing illusions

Chalk drawing, do not underestimate it.

Reason is simple: Guinness world record for being the largest 3D painting in the world, and is created on a flat surface!

Credits to Mighty Optical illusions . A classic not to be missed. It can also be found on my blogroll and is a fantastic site for any optical illusions fans/people who are bored/need to be entertained. No stress, and be amazed!

This is also created on a flat surface, credits to teenbani. Much more of such chalk drawings illusions can be found there, and this is just one which I found to be interesting and astonishing. It is as if you could take a bath underground!

Now, sit back and enjoy this advertisement from Honda. It is full of illusions, so try to catch as much as you can.

How was it? Managed to catch all of them? Well, I must say camera angles and a lot of preparation work/set-ups probably played huge roles in order to create those illusions. Still, certainly not one to be missed.

Elevators Madness

The last of the ‘artistic’ collection of optical illusions that I would bring to you would be from an elevator. Yes, an elevator. Though simple in appearance, it can be extraordinary.

“Floor-less” elevator goodness

The “floor-less” elevator illusion is probably from China. This illusion is really simple, just a trick painting on the elevator floor. The different shades of colour creates the illusion and it is enhanced by the guy sitting on the handles of the elevator, with him feeling “stressed”. Credits to darkroastedblend.

Fragile “Ice-floor” elevator goodness

This illusion is from London. The concept is exactly the same as the floor-less elevator, just another trick painting. However, for this, I think it would be even better if the two children’s reflections are shown. It would further enhance the illusion, or perhaps even complete it. Credits to 30BestOpticalillusions.
