Massive 3D Mural by 1010

Sought after German street artist 1010 was invited to Warsaw’s street art festival, Street Art Doping, to create his memorable signature massive murals. Created in his traditional style of infusing bright colors with a 3D optical illusion, the mural appears as large hole on the side of a building. The multicolored layers composed of royal purples, pastels and bright pinks, add depth and intrigue to the design. 

JOURNAL ENTRY 01 :

*Another human arrived. Somehow they seem different than the ones I’ve seen come out of the ruins before. They weren’t stained in dust. That woman was lucky, if it had been any other case, I’m not sure what I would do. But a promise is a promise. We’ll see how things go.

*Things are going smoothly so far. They’ve been kind to Papyrus and I. They haven’t lifted their finger at any of the other monsters. Maybe humans aren’t all the same after all. Still, there’s determination in their eyes like the others that concerns me. They’re powerful, whether they know it or not. I’m just glad that they’re putting that power to good use.

*They even got Undyne to falter and put down her spear. This kid isn’t bad. I guess Papyrus pushed for it and they became friends. Undyne letting a human go, who would have known she’d be capable of something like that?

*Looks like they finally got to hotlands. Still surprised they’ve made it this far remaining a pacifist. Plenty of monsters know that the king needs a last human soul. Everyone is urging to get it to him. 

*Even Alphys’s puzzles aren’t an issue for them. Looks like they get along pretty well too, even when Alphys was lying to them that entire time. I’m excited to see what other feats they’ll be able to pull off. But soon they’ll have to face the king. I don’t know if he can put a kind human soul aside in comparison to all the monsters that have been trapped here for eras.

*The king killed them.

Pois Vertigo (minimal) by Not a Knight Rider

This time I feel geometric! I used a “vertigo effect” and some super tele to achieve this sort of optical illusion. 
Note: this is the kind of animation one would do in Processing.
I wonder if Pi-slices, p5art or any other creative coder of Tumblr would like to give it a try (-:

Emma Fay Uses Contortionists To Create An Illusion of Shape In Body Painting Series

Twenty-seven-year-old British body artist Emma Fay introduces the latest project, the Marvels of Nature. The artist uses contortionists as her canvas, which add a surprising element to her body art. She uses extreme dislocations of the human physique to portray the marvellous traits of animals that evolution has endowed them with, including the unique shapes and sizes that push limits of the anatomy of both the subject and their frame.

Suspended Sculptures Create Artistic Shadow Illusions 

Graphic designer Shigeo Fukuda’s iconic 1987 piece “Lunch with a Helmet On” is composed of hundreds of suspended forks, knives, and spoons in the light, which reveal shadow sculpture. By carefully placing the obsolete items at the ideal angle,  Fukuda has managed to create a surreal optical illusion, inspired by M.C. Escher’s 3D illustrations.
