Trick Art Museum: Pictures as Real as Life!

I have been noticing that my little brother, Muymoy, who just turned 13, is becoming more creative and artistic. Aside from the fact that he invents his own fantastic dance moves like Step Up 1,2,3 combined, he appreciates those Art that has been taken into the next level. He loves those stuff that was done in a different way, in a different speed, and/or those done in a different dimension. So when I learned about the Trick Art Museum, I know for a fact that my brother would love it. :)

How To Get There:
Trick Art Museum is one of the attractions in Seriland. Seriland, The Land of Happy Thoughts, is the newest addition in Manila Ocean Park. It opened its doors to the public last November 2010 only. It is located at the 2nd level, South Wing of the Manila Ocean Park. Once you're there in Manila Ocean Park(don't worry if its too big), you're not gonna get lost anyways.
Surprise! This big map will welcome you just right after you enter Manila Ocean Park.
See that yellow section at the bottom left part? That's Seriland.

Off to go to Trick Art Museum!
Trick Art Museum is a gallery of 3D Art that brings paintings into life. For more information, you can visit their official website You can contact them at (02) 559 9563 or send them an email to Tickets are sold Php150.00/pax.

How to Turn the Paintings into Life:
All of the paintings here were made freehand by Korean artists. The paintings are designed to release its creative art form into life depending on the visitors' angle and creative poses. With the perfect angle, these art photos will create an illusion of depth and trickery. So better be creative and patient to look for that magic spot where to click your shutter. If ever that you do not have any idea on what to do and where to take the pic, you're going to notice a small frame with a sample shot beside each of the painting, you can use those as your guide.

Now, Let the pictures come into life! :)
This is the first painting we saw. If you're going to see it, its just a plain painting. I really do not know how it will turn to a 3D art until...
I was amazed after seeing the result. I touched the wall again wondering what happened.

Warning: The following is definitely a bunch of pictures (I know that). We just really did enjoy and we got carried away thinking for our next wacky poses.

Oops! Careful!

Lagi na lang akong inuutusan. Tsk

Finish the painting Muy!

Sadako :)

Waaaaah! Bad Kaka.

Hmmm... Where's our next stop?

My little brother had fun fishing in the museum.

Stranded. I hope this eagle will save me. Hindi naman siguro ako mukhang pagkain di ba?

Nature-lover yang kapatid ko, Promise!

Sige! Dalhin mo na yang dalawang yan! :P

Oh ha! I'm afraid of matches. But look what I'm holding. Ehem!

The Staff
The staff are all nice and courteous. Aside from that, they know what Seriland's Trick Art is. Each of them knows the trick of getting those good shots to reveal the life of the paintings.
This is Kuya Gelo of Seriland. He is nice and knows where the good angles are.
Thank you for the superb assistance!

Trick Art Museum is definitely a must-visit!
