Relying heavily on optical illusions, the Special Effects for Common People art exhibit imbues a bit of playfulness that will astound the everyday person. It is targeting the average folk, after all. The title aside, the art show focuses on classic pieces of furniture used on a daily basis such as couches, ladders and chairs.

Put together by Croatian artist Igor Eskinja, the Special Effects for Common People art exhibit is in line with his past work. At once simple and mind-boggling, he uses basic materials to mesmerize his audience. In this case, he uses decals that extend beyond the wall onto the surface of the furniture themselves. The result is three dimensional, as though the scenes were pulled straight from a comic book.
