The issue of separating illusion from art seems as Confusing as it seems real. The pleasure lies in the momentary shock of our awareness of the visual trick when we admit that we have been deceived as a result of the skill of this art. This is the essence of illusion, which is also what makes it surprising and admirable throughout the history of Visual arts. The rapid and volatile development witnessed by the world had a great impact on the field of arts. Various Visual art trends and currents emerged in the post-sixties period in contemporary art (post-modernism), including: conceptual art, installations, the OP Art, and others. The tremendous technological development that we are witnessing during the twenty-first century led to a remarkable change and development that was reflected accordingly On all forms of artistic currents, the research focuses on the concept of illusion in art to understand the scientific theories behind illusion and deception, and to find out why our brains process illusions the way they do, and on illusion in graphic works in particular and how it has been affected by technological development and modern techniques in the field of graphics.
