Russian Street Artists Delete Car In Real World Using Clever Optical Illusion

In Russia, a collaborative of street artists has created an awesome optical illusion, and it looks like Photoshop in real life.

Titled CTRL+X, this checkered piece is a reference to a keyboard command in Photoshop that deletes a selection. To create the clever illusion, the artists first covered the dumpster and car with white paint. They then projected a pattern onto the objects from a specific angle from which the illusion is supposed to be seen. Creatives used the projection as guide lines to mask off the white checkers with tape and then spray paint everything else gray.

The work was part of Stenograffia, an annual Russian street art festival, and it’s certainly a creative way of addressing “garbage” in the country.

Probably with a projector that projects the raster onto the car. Then you trace the projected lines with a pencil or some kind of marker.
