When I first discovered optical illusions, it was something of a revelation. When you see an optical illusion, your brain is tricked into seeing something that isn’t there. It’s a testament to the power of illusion that even when you know what’s going on, the image still appears to have depth or movement.

Tricks of the eye are one thing, but art takes that idea and runs with it. Artists have managed to create some pretty amazing pieces using clever tricks to trick us into seeing multiple images at once or not being able to discern where one object ends and another begins.

The following list is my personal favorite pieces of art which use optical illusion techniques in their creation. These are pieces which have stood the test of time; they’re still just as impressive today as they were when they were first created (and many are even more so). In some cases, you may need to squint a bit or view them from an angle to appreciate the full effect. At any rate, these are all masterfully done and definitely deserve a place in any optical illusion art collection:

The most common optical illusions are produced by visual perception and the human brain’s natural tendency to make sense of what it sees, called pareidolia. The eye itself plays a huge part in creating optical illusions throughout the human body, including the brain’s ability to see things like light where there is no light.

Trompe-l’œil is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. Well known examples are trompe-l’œil painting, used in murals, and trompe l’œil books or paintings. The word trompe-l’œil means “deceives the eye” in French; trompe meaning “trick” or “deceit” and œil meaning “eye”.

The best artists who work in this technique try to deceive people into believing that they can reach out and grab the image. These paintings have their

Some people create awesome illusions with their body.
