Dutch anamorphic artist Leon Keer has spent 25 years shocking and delighting people with 3D illusions that bend perspectives.

This street artist creates three-dimensional murals with either paint or chalk—often using some tape and string to help with the optical illusion.

His work has appeared across the world—the United States, Canada, Aruba, United Arab Emirates, as well as countries in Europe and Asia.

 

“Every street art piece is unique and belongs to the street and its residents, the temporary fact about this artform strengthens its existence,” Keer explains on his website.

See a few of his masterpieces below.
