Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Flatiron Building Optical Illusion

This is the back side of the Flatiron building in Toronto, Canada. The mural was done by Derek Besant and installed in 1980. The building itself was built in 1892 and is unique in its own right, view it from the front.

The mural, called Trompe.d'oille is even more unique than it looks due to two facts. 1st the mural isn't painted on the building but on a raised board attached to the building. The 2nd thing that makes this mural unique is that mural is actually painted to be a reflection of the Perkins Building, which is located directly across the street.
