Trick Eye Art

During my stint in Vietnam (still here btw), I visited a very interesting exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City. This exhibition consisted of tens of big-sized 3D paintings. Paintings that reveal another dimension in fact, as you can be part of the scenery too and bring it alive. You just need to be able to use some imagination and you can shape your own reality. Which allows for taking some stunning photos of course! Every picture tells a thousand words…

This exhibition is “obviously” all about optical illusions, Trompe l’Oeil and Trick of the eye style, hinting at the Vietnamese French history too in a way. Most paintings are of Korean origine, and I also spotted some European ones. I would definitely recommend this extravagant happening if you are in Saigon around now. If not, check it out later this year in Hanoi for example.
