Art in Paradise - 3D Museum Chiang Mai
Stand amongst flowing lava, ride a gondola through Venice or spend time under the sea- anything is possible at the Art in Paradise. Pose under the surface of a swimming pool, come face to face with a great white shark or defy gravity inside of an upside down room. As Chiang Mai’s one and only “Illusion Art” museum, Art in Paradise allows visitors to become part of the art in an interactive afternoon.
What Exactly Does Illusion Art Mean?
Originally stemming from Korea, illusion art uses special techniques and skilled artists to produce their work on two dimensional surfaces. Through these methods, regular art is transformed into 3D installations that allow others to playfully interact through their own poses and creative photography.
What to Do at Art in Paradise
The museum is split up into 6 themed sections and in total, there are 130 paintings amongst them. There is the underwater zone which depicts marine life and mermaids, the wildlife zone, a section of classic painting re-creations and a collection of art featuring world famous destinations. In addition to the art, the museum is also home to a restaurant and café serving everything from cake and cookies to coffee and waffles.
