Looking at art that has the ability to twist your mind and your senses is one of the simple joys of being a human; these optical illusion artworks are skillfully created to make you question your reality.

Optical illusion artworks can be created in many different ways. The idea is that whatever the artist creates is perceived by the viewer as something that it is not. Creations that alter our sense of certainty are awe-inspiring and unique.

Artists create these mind-altering creations using a variety of complex and sometimes secretive techniques. From paintings that seem obnoxiously oversized to stationary sculptures that appear to be swirling, there is really no limit to the possibilities of optical illusion artworks.

Whether you enjoy being confused by the tricks optical illusion artworks play on your mind, or if you get scared by the thought of an alternate universe, you have to admit that these creations are made by talented individuals.
