Trick Art 3D Gallery in Bali

Trick-Eye 3D Museum in Seminyak

Update: Trick Art 3D Gallery closed down late 2015

Trick Art 3D Gallery is a fresh and fun interactive attraction where guests can execute fun poses of all sorts against masterfully crafted murals and paintings to create stunning three-dimensional illusions. There are approximately 80 pieces of life-size and hyper-realistic murals to interact with in the gallery’s collection, from parodied takes on famous and classical paintings, blockbuster movie characters, to fairytale and magical themes.

Trick Art 3D Gallery Bali is the first trick-eye museum on the island, located at the Seminyak end of Sunset Road. Opened in April 2014, this two-storey art space is easy to find opposite Swiss-Belinn Seminyak Hotel.

This kind of attraction appeals to our imagination and Trick Art 3D Gallery have worked hard to provide something for the whole family. Younger children will prefer the more relaxed themes such as sharing a horse-driven cart ride with mum and dad through a rural countryside, or cuddly polar bears with their arms reaching out from the frame. Adults will most likely enjoy the parodies of classical masterpieces, such as acting Da Vinci by adding a finishing brush stroke to Mona Lisa, or parrying a sword with a horse riding Napoleon Bonaparte. Plastic stools cater for kids who need the higher reach.

Inside the Trick Art 3D Gallery there are also a few life-size installations that create amusing force-perspective illusions after the picture is taken. Our favourite is an asymmetrical room whereby models standing in the foreground and background results in one looking like a giant.

A number of Korean artists were flown in during Trick Art 3D Gallery’s conception, and the whole body of work was amazingly completed within only a month. The highly skilled painters applied unique shading and borders on the walls and gypsum panels, resulting in full-scale backgrounds that once in intended perspective and at the right angle, trick our brains into seeing a Tyrannosaurus Rex shattering through the wall with its jaws wide open behind you, reeling in a blue marlin from a hanging picture frame depicting a reef, or a giant anaconda leaping from the ravine to ensnare you.

No food or drink is allowed inside Trick Art 3D Gallery, but cameras are highly advised. There are usually more visitors over the weekend, and patiently taking turns after other groups of friends who seemingly endlessly experiment with different and sometimes new, whacky and inspiring poses that you might want to try for yourself. A good tip is to set the camera angle perfectly and adjust the subject before the shot. When there is no ‘director’ and not many visitors, bring a tripod. Assistants are on hand to show you around, suggest best poses, and even take the shot for you.
