One of the most incredible forms of artwork to literally hit the streets in the last few years is 3D optical illusions. This is where the artist draws a piece that, when viewed from a specific angle, looks like a very realistic, 3D scene. Artists transform posters, sidewalks, and other structures into whole other worlds, often using only chalk.
In this collection, we chose to focus on street art. These artists are often hired to promote a brand, but many do their work for the simple fun of producing great art. A great way to gain exposure as a new artist is to create your own 3D street art and place it on your website or do a social media blast of the images. So take a look at the following incredible 3D optical illusion artworks and let them inspire you to create your own inspiring designs.
