28 Illusory Graffiti Displays

From 3D Illusion Chalk Drawings to 3D Dark Knight Designs

— April 16, 2014 — Art & Design
These illusory graffiti designs are showcasing the immense talent that these artists exhibit as they creatively blend chalk designs and graffiti displays into their surrounding environments.

While graffiti is often associated as defamatory artwork, there's no denying the raw and amazingly detailed techniques that these street artists exhibit. These illusory displays in particular, showcase how artists are able to creatively turn ordinary imagery into wonderfully misleading visual imagery. Seeking to blur the lines between what is real and what isn't, these graffiti displays are able to challenge ordinary perception and encourage onlookers to dig deeper into what they think they actually see.

From Super Mario chalk art to hallucinatory street art, these illusory graffiti displays are taking simplistic street art to the next level by incorporating more imaginative qualities into the overall design.
