"You never now whether you’re going up or not when climbing the stairs," said MC Escher. His mind-twisting false perspective has inspired many artists, and his technique has been used in advertising, animation, computer games, and illustration ever since.

István Orosz is a Hungarian artist obsessed by pictures that fool the eye. For several years he used them to illustrate classical theater pieces like "West Side Story" or "Leonce and Lena."

He also created several short movies in the same manner. Watch and mind the steps! Stats for False Perspective Posters Trending: Older & Warm
