Painted Illusion Trail

Don't miss...

The Painted Illusion Trail in Staithes in coastal North Yorkshire was created in 2014 by renowned local artist Paul Czainski. The trail includes 8 realistic 'illusions' painted on buildings around the hidden corners of the village. The paintings include mermaids with mirrors and a representation of Noah's ark in the style of the trompe l’oeil paintings, which depict realistic images to create an optical illusion of 3D.

There is no trail website but you you can pick up a leaflet in shops around the village and this is a great video of the artist at work:
