    The type of art is called trompe l’oeil, or Trick the eye. I met a fellow who does these sort of installations professionally, and his work is really quite disconcerting.

    Kountrykat….IF you would look at some others such as “3D Painted Stairs 2″ then you would understand that at certain angels it makes sense, instead of jumping to conclusions, and making a fool out of yourself in front of millions of people….Heh i’m done

    OH MY GOD! This is truly fantastic. I find it really hard to believe this stuff is real. I try to imagine running my hand across that wall, but it just blows my mind!!

  31. [[ArsH]] says:

    I’m not a professional at this kind of stuff, but I believe I know how they do it. Apparently they start at the top at an angle, then they continue once they reach the corner at half that angle.

    These pictures are taken at Bayview subway station on the Sheppard Subway Line in Toronto

    It’s not a long and complicated process. Also, Picasso, clearly, you have never done anything like this. You do them in about an hour or so.

    Hook up a projector with the image, it shines from the angle you put it up, onto all the places that image goes. Then, you paint/chalk/tape on the parts of the wall/door/floor that has light on it. When you take away the projector, viola! You have these cool optical illusions.

    It could be a positive to a negitive transparency of i forget what kind of film would be used. possibly infared.
