Singaporean artist Keng Lye has combined beauty and illusion in a masterful way in this amazing work depicting a small octopus in a bowl. The photos look incredibly life-like, as if it’s a real, squirming, writhing octopus. Keng Lye achieves this beautiful effect by painting delicate paintings onto layer upon layer of crystal-clear resin. As the layers, and the painting, grow, the octopus gains depth and appears to be partially submerged.

After seeing lots of anamorphic illusions you get really bored about this whole thing. Yesterday, however, a friend of mine showed me a video titled “Amazing Anamorphic Illusions” that just blew my mind. A master of such illusions, going by the Brusspup nickname, posted this video just two days ago and it already has more than 2 millions views.
Young Chilean artist Fredo draws absolutely mind-blowing three-dimensional pencil drawings that look like they’re about to jump off the page. Well, actually, he’s already 20 years old at the time of writing this article, but our title is not completely a lie – majority of his works were submitted to Deviant Art back in 2008 or even 2007 when he was 16-17 years old. Some of his 3d drawings took him only 30 minutes to complete, but there were cases when he needed a whole month.
Today, we want to show you another wonderful 3D illusion which is installed in front of the steps of Paris’s city hall. French artist François Abélanet created this incredible 3-dimensional grass globe with the help of about ninety workers and called it ‘Qui croire?’ (‘who to believe?’). When viewed at a certain angle it looks as though it was a large sphere.
There are probably three things you cannot avoid in life – death, taxes and seeing another collection of 3D pavement art on the Internet. While Julian Beever’s 3D Pavement Drawings are the most popular, we believe that artists like Kurt Wenner are less known, so we will take a risk and share his works with you.
