Art comes to life at 3D exhibition in China

Visitors have flocked to the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou to see a new three-dimensional art exhibition.

The 83 oil paintings on show at the Magic Art Special Exhibition are 2D drawings which are painted creatively to add the effect of an extra dimension.

Twenty South Korean artists spent more than four months creating the works, which were on show for three years in their home country before being brought to China.

Rather than simply looking at the works, visitors are encouraged to interact with the art by posing creatively to help bring the scenarios depicted in the paintings to life. Thousands of people have been to see the exhibition since it opened on July 1. Organisers plan to take the paintings all over China over the next 18 months.

There's a photo gallery here.

I'm disappointed that at the last one we didn't see someone posing underneath it with their mouth open. I'm sure people do it!
