Hallway Optical Illusion

How would you like to walk down this hallway?  It is made entirely out of tiles and while it looks like it is sinking on the right side, it is a perfectly flat surface.   This bizarre hallway can be found at the Casa Ceramica (a tile company, of course) showroom in Manchester, England.  It took […]

Optical Illusion Coffee Mug

I recently came across an interesting coffee mug that is available for sale on Zazzle.  As a fan of optical illusions, I thought it was a very clever design for an otherwise ordinary drinking vessel.  The spatial geometric design gives the illusion that the mug is concave rather than having a truly cylindrical design.

Lifelike Portrait from Photograph

I am always amazed when a talented artist can create a portrait that looks absolutely lifelike.  This hyper-realistic portrait of a vibrant, young girl was created by an artist using a real photograph.  You would think that with a lot of practice, anyone could create paintings such as this one.  But, as we all know, […]

Huge Table and Chairs by Robert Therrien

Robert Therrien is an American sculptor based out of Los Angeles, California.   He attended the University of Southern California, where he earned an MFA.  Some of his installations are very large versions of ordinary things, like the example below.  This sculpture of an enormous table and set of chairs is meant to examine the viewer’s […]
