This Artist Creates Amazing Optical Illusions Through The Combination Of Everyday Objects

Sometimes the things we see are often not exactly what they first appear to be. One artist that has captured that concept is Helga Stentzel, a UK-based artist who was born in Russia.

Using everyday objects, Stentzel twists reality to create bizarre and surreal images that really captivate an audience. Ranging from a representation of a horse made out of clothes hanging on a washing-line, to a dog made out of lettuce peeping out of a bin, to birds that are actually bananas, Helga has a wide and varied portfolio. She is even known to use stop-motion animation to create funny little scenes.

The ability to use everyday objects to cause the mind to immediately think of something entirely unconnected is not just a bit of fun, it also opens-up deep philosophical questions regarding imagery, representation and reality.

In an interview with Hello, Wonderful, Helga went on to describe her life and background, saying:

"I was born and raised in Siberia (Russia) and moved to London at the age of 21 to study at Central Saint Martins. My grandmother was German, hence the name and my addiction to organizing and constantly optimising everything in my house. I have two boys aged 8 and 4 and a very supportive husband who also happens to be my photography assistant, strategist, financial advisor and brainstorming partner on top of his full time job!"

Helga's work is certainly popular and has now even been featured on Instagram's own official account. Her work has also received praise from prominent individuals such as Simon Clarke, Senior Content Manager with BBC Worldwide, who said:

"Helga's creative output is exceptional. She never fails to surpass our expectations with her ideas and has become a fantastic and vital addition to our social team. A true creative genius!"
