Now, Interact

CHENNAI: Actor Parthepan on Monday inaugurated Click Art Museum, India’s first 3D trick art museum. The museum, which has been designed and created by eminent artist A P Shreethar, is located at Snow Kingdom, VGP complex, East Coast Road.

Talking to City Express, artist Shreethar said, “Every piece of art here is complete only when the viewer enters the frame. It is interactive art. The museum has 24 interactive art pieces.”

NOW.JPGTrick art has a history of over 2,000 years. The technical name for this type of art is ‘Tompe-l’oeil’, which in French means ‘deceive the eye’. The purpose of this form of art is to create an illusion that the image is three dimensional when it is actually two dimensional.

Showing more details about his museum, Shreethar said, “There are only 42 such places in 12 countries around the world that have such interactive art museums. Now, we have it here in India.”

While the art pieces have been painted on the walls, there are markings on the floor where a viewer must stand to be a part of the painting and from where a photographer must click the picture to include the person in the painting.

The museum has already caught the attention of the public, who, after the inauguration, were seen clicking pictures of themselves with the art pieces.
