Trick Eye Museum Singapore
Trick Eye Museum Singapore is best known for using optical illusions and different art techniques to make images look realistically 3-D. The name Trick Eye is short for ‘Trick of the Eye’. This refers to an art technique that uses realistic imagery and turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. This illusion technique goes way back into the 17th century and it is based on trompe l’oeil, originally a French term meaning “deceive the eye”. The concept is similar to those realistic street art images where you get the feeling that you could just fall in.
