ArtVo is a fun way to spend an afternoon down at the Docklands, with a unique take on presenting pieces of artwork by a variety of artists.
The art museum thrives on a type of art called Trick Art. Just as the name suggests, this form of art tricks the human brain into believing that the picture presented is in 3D.
