Everything on film seems to be in 3D these days: Toy Story 3, Ice Age 4, even the Biebs' concert movie Never Say Never. Yet this 3D craze has been spreading - from the West to the East, and from movies to paintings - all the way to Hangzhou , the largest city in Zhejiang province.

The 2012 Magic Art Special Exhibition now on display at Hangzhou Peace International Exhibition and Conference Centre, is showing many breathtaking 3D paintings created by 15 talented South Korean artists. And it's proving a really big hit.

Visitors can look at the works of art from different angles to gain new perspectives of the compositions. Some allow you stand face to face with a fire-breathing dragon, get close to a man-eating shark, or examine a dinosaur's teeth. Many people have showed their inventive side to become part of the works of art, too.

In this week's Eye Report, we look to some of the exhibition's mesmerising illusions.
