Pencil Vs Camera - 17

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||



Another illusion... Sort of an introduction to my next series entitled

"Chess Art" with some optical illusions, strong perspectives and

vanishing points... I took this photo a few days ago and also made

the rough sketch. Thanks for your constructive comments!


>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Illusions:

Art, imitating life, imitating art... the artist claims his technique is a

"new visual invention" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)


Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera

images in progress (with a small animation and original music).



For more information about my art:




Grasp the Mental Game


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Life is like a chess play

One by one they move:

Pawns to a Queen – away

Make attack to improve!


Square to square advance

Grasp the mental game

Give the King his chance

Have a patience to be tame


Carefully observe adversary

Wrong move can’t be adjust

Chess art is like all military

No one out there really to trust
