Some brain-scrambling street art in France

We've seen some incredible examples of street art (opens in new tab) over the past few months, with art installations across the world brightening up an array of city streets. However, when it combines the aspects of trompe l'oeil (opens in new tab), it serves to produce an incredible spin on street art.

Here, French street art duo Ella & Pitr (aka Papier Peintres (opens in new tab)) created a series of picture frame installations for their photo series, entitled 'Anamorphoses'. It was created for an ad campaign for the National Dramatic Center of St. Etienne (opens in new tab) in France and serves to scramble the minds of passer-bys.

We still can't quite get our heads around the exact proportions and angles of the installation but we're sure that it's set to make quite an impact on the residents of St. Etienne.
