Illusions in Paint – telling our stories


Trompe l’oeil (fr.trick- the-eye) offers a vehicle to engage an audience, to entice them across a threshold … from the actual to the imagined.

By using the illusion genre in the public art field, and fueled by an awareness of the surrounding cultural and physical environment, opportunities to raise the bar with inclusive artworks present themselves time and time again.

‘Not only are we raising community spirits by rejuvenating urban and suburban spaces, we’re also giving our communities a voice – an opportunity to celebrate heritage, identity and aspirations.”


People love to be tricked…
