To some, going to an art museum can feel like equivalent of sitting in an exceptionally boring class. “Boring” is the last word viewers would use after visiting The Magic Art Special Exhibition in Hangzhou, China. You don’t need to be able to tell the difference between a Michelangelo and a Matisse to enjoy the works of art displayed at the gallery.
3D movies have become quit ordinary, but 3D art is something entirely new. In the exhibit, the paintings themselves are two dimensional, but with the help of boards to extend canvases, the use of floors and walls and a little imagination, the paintings are made to look like they’re popping out of their frames!
Visitors can even interact with the paintings by touching 3D elements, sitting on them and even sticking their heads into the artwork! This is one of the few exhibits where photography is actually encouraged as opposed to prohibited. Many have commented how realistic the paintings look and how much more interesting the exhibit is when compared to a 3D film.
This exhibit sounds super innovative and unique! Hopefully it will do a world tour so that people all over the planet can admire it and be introduced to a whole new type of art!
