» A collection of Optical Illusion Art

Optical Illusion Art or Opt Art is a genre based on mathematics that presents optical illusions. To produce these types of illusions, the patterns of moiré are created with the help of the repetition of form and color. Many of the opt art images are painted in black and white color only and the viewer who tries to understand these images will only see hidden images, three-dimensional forms, movement, foreground or background confusion and other stimulation.

Gradient Optical Illusion

Comments (0)

So what do your see? The horizontal grey bar is made of two colors? Check again by covering the background and just seeing the grey bar.

The horizontal grey bar is of the same color throughout, you see the difference because of the difference in background. Amazing??

Grid Lines Illusion

Do you see all these red-orange lines parallel/perpendicular to each other? If not see closely, all these lines are perfectly parallel/prependicular ( horizontal and vertical) but due to the background, they dont look so.

In this illusion, one of the blue lines appear to be shorter than the other one. The left side one seems bigger but actually they both are of exactly the same length.
