Trompe l'oeil - Trompe-l'œil


Trompe l'oeil is a French term that translates to "deceive the eye." It refers to a technique in visual arts where realistic imagery is used to create an optical illusion, making two-dimensional objects appear three-dimensional or flat surfaces appear to have depth and texture. This technique often involves meticulous attention to detail, shading, and perspective to trick the viewer into perceiving something as real, even though it's a flat representation. Trompe l'oeil is commonly used in murals, paintings, and other forms of art to create stunning illusions that challenge the viewer's perception.
