Artist Hikaru Cho Creates Visual Illusions That Are Good Enough to Eat
Hikaru Cho is a Tokyo-based artist who creates amazing hyper-realistic paintings that play on optical illusion and the perception of surface. At first glance, it might be hard to figure out what the deception is in these ordinary images, however a closer look reveals a tomato, a banana and an egg that have been perfectly camouflaged to look like an orange a cucumber and an eggplant. The project appropriately titled "It's Not What It Seems" showcases Cho's talent and skills in a playful way. Visual News writes, "In transforming what we see, Cho is helping us re-think everyday objects along with human form and nature."
