This Artist’s Deceptive Drawings Seem to Move Between Dimensions

It’s 3D, it’s 3D, it’s 3D—no, wait, 2D!

Serbian artist Nikola Čuljić has an incredible talent: he creates sketches that seem to jump off the page. Using only colored pencils, markers, and pastels, he plays with lighting and angles in order to trick viewers into thinking his work is three-dimensional. (His Bored Panda article on the subject is appropriately titled, “3D Drawings That I Create To Confuse People.”)

Needless to say, he is succeeding. Even in his only four years of drawing, he has mastered the art of dimension deception.
