A New Wall by István Orosz

Have a look at this piece of impossible architecture drawn by István Orosz and try to figure out how it was built.  Obviously it could not be constructed in the real world, but fortunately on paper (or on your  screen) this type of design can absolutely exist.  Notice how each of the three doorways are […]

Self-Pouring Bottle on a Twisted Page

The title pretty much explains today’s optical illusion, which is courtesy of Swiss artist Sandro Del-Prete.  Del-Prete is a master at drawing impossible scenes and this example is certainly no exception.  Shown below is a twisted sheet of paper with a cleverly-designed drawing of a bottle pouring its own glass of wine by itself.  The […]

Ultimate Stunt by Thomas Barbèy

Thomas has once again used his photography skills and imagination to come up with this very unusual balancing act.  Merging a photograph of a tightrope walker headed toward the viewer with a photograph looking up at a chandelier and ceiling, a confusing and unsettling image is born. Regarding the process that Thomas uses to create […]

Impossible Triangle on Fence

The impossible triangle (also known as the Penrose triangle) has intrigued viewers (and artists) since it was first introduced by Oscar Reutersvärd in the 1930s.  In the photograph below, street artist Femoesa designed this version of the impossible triangle using a chain link fence.  This particular impossible work of art was created in 2013 in […]

Impossible Construction

Karlos Calonge Domenech sent me this impossible construction he created a few weeks ago.  The way that many of the angles line up on this odd structure could simply not exist.  I count a total of three impossible rectangles incorporated into the design.  Do you see them all? If you’ve got any optical illusions that […]
