Optical Illusion Graffiti creates portal to a parallel universe on the side of many different buildings around the globe!
Parisian graffiti artist Astro knots flat architectural facades into illusory vortexes with a vibrant graphic twist. His painted patterns combine smooth, swirling curves and calligraphy with sharper shapes in dynamically detailed designs that are eye-catching on their own; and, as if to suck his viewers farther into each piece, he adds the appearance of dark, receding chasms, tunneling deep into the walls.
The newest work of Astro is on a residential building in Loures, Portugal, just south of Lisbon. The optical illusion seems to offer entry to a parallel universe, so ordinary passersby might step off the sidewalk into new dimensions of time and space. So damn awesome! DESIGNSIGH can’t take off an eye of these illusional graffiti styles!
