Even if you’ve never considered yourself a big fan of modern art, you might be surprised at the vast array of different art forms our era actually has to offer. Contrary to stereotype, there are actually a lot of cool art forms out there that don’t belong to the whole “paint stroke across a canvas” school-of-thinking and some of them are really cool. For instance, here we’ve collected a group of optical illusion paintings and chalk drawings to form a collection of mind-blowing 3D street art you won’t believe isn’t real.
Paint splotches on canvases aside, one of the truly interesting things the art of the past few decades has brought about is the transformation of graffiti from stereotypical vandalism to the inclusion of truly mind-blowing pieces of art. Now we’re not saying that scrawling a cuss word on a bathroom wall is impressive or even acceptable, but we think you’ll agree that some of the following drawings and paintings are no less priceless just because their canvases happen to be buildings, sidewalks, and public squares.In fact, these days, many of the talented artists you’ll see here are not only commissioned for their work but sought after worldwide. So the next time your mom wants to pull you along on a boring trip to the modern art museum, bust out your laptop instead and let her get a load of these awesome pieces of street art instead. Without further ado, step on into this incredible collection of 3D street art you won’t believe isn’t real.
