Art in Paradise shows illusion paintings divided into 8 themes
Illusion paintings on the walls and floors transform ordinary two dimensional (2D) surfaces into three dimensional (3D) interactive environments. By combining a variety of special techniques and professional skills, the illusion of depth is established. In this way, the viewer will get a sensory perception which is neither true or false, but which makes it seem he or she is really inside the picture. An illusion is not the opposite of reality, it is just a deformed or altered impression.
The Art in Paradise exhibition is subdivided into 8 themes:
- classic art
Fly on a magic carpet, enter the Pharao`s Tomb, step into a rustic European village, try not to fall of a moldy wooden bridge in the jungle, make a wish at Alibaba`s magic lamp, have a close encounter with a tiger, … The photo opportunities are endless in this collection of around 130 paintings.
