From the mind bending "Cube Triangle", to "The Device to Root Out Evil", here are 15 Crazy Art Pieces You Need To See Twice. Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 8. The Cube Triangle Francis Tabary creates what he calls “magic art” and one glance any of his illusionary 3D sculptures, you can probably see why. Tabary joined a magic club when he was a teenager and though he graduated from university with a degree in chemistry, it seemed to desire to do magic outweighed everything else. So keep staring his triangular sculpture made of cubes and try to figure out exactly how it works. As far as what’s been reported, Tabary has made at least 15 artistic sculptures that employ the magic of illusions. He’s even toured the world with his knack for magic and art. 7. Differing Heights This is another piece of art available for visitors to interact with at the Trick Eye Museum in South Korea. Thanks to some cleverly bent mirrors and positioning, this young girl looks like a giant to the much older girl beside her. It’s one of the more popularly visited pieces in the museum, as it’s a gag that gets people every time. 6. Man and Skull Often referred to with the rather straightforward name of the Man and Skull sculpture, you’d think that this sculpture located in Prague would make a little more sense. What’s funny the fact that it’s supposedly inspired by the work of Franz Kafka is what ultimately shed some light as to why something like this exists. Who knew that Kafka would make you understand something more? 5. Nation For Itself Forever Something else you would find on the streets of Prague would be the famous statue by aforementioned artist David Cerny, named Nation For Itself Forever. There isn’t much explanation needed when you hear that it’s long been a subject of controversy. Installed in 2002, the building the naked golden man sits on top of is the National Theatre, which is located near the Vltava river. What’s even more interesting that is that it was meant to be installed a little later in 2003, kind of as comedic symbolism referring to when the Czech Republic had that referendum when joining the EU. It’s quite a statement and sight, indeed. 4. Upside Down on the Road Just passing by a sight of this small red car upside down on asphalt that seems to be peeling from the ground, you would probably have a lot of questions. To answer one of them, it’s not some strange phenomenon that was a result of an accident or natural disaster. This is, in fact, an art installation located in the middle of a car park in London’s Southbank Centre. Artist Alex Chinneck from Hackney is the mind behind the eye-catching and mind-boggling design. As you can see, it’s seems perfectly safe to stand under since Chinneck’s doing it himself and the car’s apparently held up by reliable steel. The car is a Vauxhall Corsa, which is lifted off the ground at 4.5 m. The message behind the art piece, Chinneck says, is for people to enjoy and draw from it what they will. 3. The Slanted Face Yet another creation by anamorphic inspired artist, entrepreneur, and engineer Jonty Hurwitz. At a distance, the pieces of this bust-like sculpture are all spaced out at certain distances so that, at the right angle, it appears like a regular sculpture of a face. 2. The Clown Ballerina We all have those days when you look up and see something and just wonder what in the world it’s doing there--right in front of you in the same place and time. That’s the thought lots of people had when crossing this Clown Ballerina dude outside on the streets of Los Angeles. Even though it’s probably not the weirdest thing you could find in LA, it might be in at least the top 20. 1. The Device to Root Out Evil When you look at this building that’s impaling the ground right side up, it would just appear to be any other small church you’d find in some countryside. Quite understandably, when this installation, named The Device to Root Out Evil, first made an appearance, it caused some controversy--as it does whenever religion is referenced in a not-so savory way. The Device to Root Out Evil was designed by Dennis Oppenheim from America. Of this particular artwork of his, Oppenheim describes the upside down church to have been “lifted by a terrific force and brought to the site as a device or method of rooting out evil forces.” So kind of like a Holy shovel, except a whole church. Pretty clever, actually. It’s made appearances in galleries and museums around the world, such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Tate Gallery in London.
