Spanish street art Pejac is back again, this time with a series of optical illusion "windows" painted in the Uskudar district of Istanbul, Turkey. The trompe-l'oeil pieces are titled 'Lock, Poster, and Shutters,' and will fool even the most keen observer into thinking they're part of the landscape.

The artist achieved the realistic look of the decorative windows by using acrylic paint and sandpaper, effectively blending the art into its environment. Pejac worked with the existing surroundings and textures of each building, producing an illusion that fits right in with no questions asked.

Pejac masterfully blurs the lines between perception and reality, creating the type of illusion that really seems like it could be magic.
