Grounded Illusions

Creating deceptive art works is nothing new to the graffiti and street artists of the world so when I spotted this rug by Mauricio and Sebastian Lara (Collectively known as Eos Mexico) I wondered if that was where their inspiration had come from.

The rug titled ‘Sima Pashtun’ brings together both contemporary and ancient design influences. The rug was produced using 3000 year old techniques and yet its design was clearly technologically enabled.

Street artists don’t have the luxury of photoshop when they create their works, just skill, time and effort. So my praise goes out to the geurilla. Below I have featured a few of the best graffiti artworks that use the same deceptive technique. (Images courtesy of Street Art Utopia)
