Russian Street Artists Delete Car In Real World Without Using Photoshop

Published 6 years ago

Have you ever wished you could use Photoshop in real life? Would you delete that one tree that’s blocking the view through your window or maybe multiply the amount of donuts you just bought? Sadly, while no one has yet invented Photoshop for the real life, a collaboration of Russian street artists came pretty close to that.

In a project called CTRL+X (the Photoshop shortcut for deleting a section), they created an optical illusion by painting a checkered pattern on a car and a dumpster using grey and white paint. When looked at from a certain angle, the pattern looks exactly like the one you get when deleting a segment in Photoshop. This installation was a part of an annual Russian street art festival called Stenograffia.

Check out the result and work in progress in the gallery below!

The making of:

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
