Pop goes the easel: new 3D art museum opens in the city, July 8

8 Jul 2014

Visitors playfully interact with artwork at the HK 3D Museum which opened to the public yesterday. South China Morning Post photographer Felix Wong captured some of the most eye-catching images at the new cultural attraction in Tsim Sha Tsui, which features dozens of paintings that allow people to immerse themselves in fantasy situations like escaping from the jaws of a giant snake and being chased by a shark. The pieces - which are two-dimensional but appear three-dimensional thanks to optical illusions - were painted by a team of mainly mainland Chinese artists in Seoul. It is the first museum dedicated to 3D art to open in the city.
