It was all about the 3D paintings. For the 2012 Magic Art exhibition in Hangzhou, which lies in the Eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, visitors were entertained to the tune of interacting with 3D paintings, literally getting to exist within a painting itself. According to the International Business Times, the Chinese outsourced the work to "15 South Korean artists, exclusively for the Hangzhou's Magic Art Special Exhibition, over a period of four months."

There is a mutal consensus between ourselves and the readers of Juxtapoz; we love sketchbook viewing. But rarely do we get something that blends sketchbooks and a bit of optical trickery. Not only does Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki show you his sketchbooks, he creates a 3D effect that is a simple but exciting illusion.

San Francisco just celebrated the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge by exploding a bunch of fireworks off the famed ocean crossing. The British are set to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's royal jubilee. aka, 60 years on the throne (at the throne?). To celebrate, Pictures on Walls has a few prints to honor the jubilee, including Banksy's "Er..." file that is available for you to download and print yourself.

Boolab is a production house dedicated to motion graphics, animation (2D and 3D) and the development of other visual techniques, both traditional and cutting or bleeding edge, and this is a reminder of where we came from and where we are going. A simple, infectious piece of animated art.

We got an email this morning from a colleague telling us we had to check out the 3D street art of John Pugh. Or as Pugh calls it, "Monumental Mural Art." He practices the technique of trompe l'oeil, a technique that involves extremely realistic images creating an optical illusion that makes objects appear in 3D.

Artists Ryan and Trevor Oakes have invented a machine to draw realistic scenes in perspective, using a technique which splits the ocular system allowing them to create views that match the field of view of human vision. Just watch the video, it will make more sense. Video after the jump . . .

3D is only a gimmick when used commercially to sell things, otherwise it’s fair game. Free admission to Wais’s 3d piece.

Sometimes we think 3D is gimmicky, but when it comes to 3D on canvas, a painting, then we are open ears. Here is a series of 3D works on canvas by French artist, Shaka, all with twisted color and large-scale compositions.
