This artist is using his iPhone to create mind-blowing optical illusions

We love it when artists think outside the box. And that’s — literally — exactly what visual artist Anshuman Ghosh did. Ghosh is known for creating optical illusion art with his iPhone, and we’re so impressed with what he’s done. And really, all he did to construct his incredible prints? He incorporated a little bit of paper.

Ghosh, who is located in South Africa, uses Instagram to showcase his art. He’s acquired well over 92,000 followers on his “moography” account, and updates — on average — once a week. (That said, he’s had a few longer breaks. Since these ideas need to be thought out and sketched, we totally get the occasional lag. Great art can’t be created on demand.)

Pretty cool, right?

Here are a few more of our favorites:

Lucky for us, a lot of Ghosh’s ideas incorporate food. But they also go beyond that.

Oh yes. Ghosh is making ordinary tasks seem pretty darn extraordinary.

In an article with Bored Panda, Ghosh explained his entire process.

"I like to carry my idea notebook with me everywhere in case something inspires me," he said. "Once the initial sketch is done, I get down to preparing the illustrations and the paper cutouts which I arrange when I am ready to shoot. I use 160 gsm paper and a standard stationery kit to create the artworks."

On average, each iPhone-centric piece takes anywhere between two to four hours. So, there’s a lot of time, dedication, and love that go into these prints.

We’ll drink to that.
