Trick Art Museum, Jeju Island, Korea

Trick Art Museum  is certainly an interesting place to visit if you visit  Jeju island. We were there during the  June holidays and  were fascinated by the exhibits which we saw there. The museum was the first stop on the 1 day tour which we signed up to attend and certainly an eye opener for me. Many of the painting were literally popping off the wall.

The museum was really very crowded so it was quite difficult to take pictures with an  non cooperative  girl. In the above painting the seawater was spilling out of the painting onto the floor.  We weren’t positioned that well and did not have the right effect of being splashed by the seawater.

I think we got it better with the positioning for this shot. It was easier to pose for this shot as compared to the previous one as we just needed to ” hold” the handle. If you were wondering the handle was actually painted onto the wall so there wasn’t anything physical to hold onto while posing for the photo.

It really looked as if the giraffe had placed it’s head through the window to get to Tiger girl.  The shadow on the side really added to the 3D effect of the painting. There were many other pictures which I wanted to take pictures with but didn’t get the chance. Hopefully the next time we go to Jeju I will be able to do so.
