WORTH a visit - Awesome 3d Art

 

The illusionary work of Dutch artist Ramon Bruin, aka JJK Airbrush, will leave you wondering what's real and what's just a clever illustration. The artist's skilled hand crafts imaginary three-dimensional worlds on two-dimensional platforms adorned with props like pencils and other art supplies used to create each image. Although, it can be confusing at times to decipher whether the props themselves are drawings.
