Title of Artwork: Sport Movement

Artist: Taopic

Form: Mural

Year of Completion: 2023


This mural employs optical art to visually depict the dynamic movements of handball and basketball players. The fundamental actions inherent in both sports, such as catching, throwing, bouncing, striking, passing, shooting, dribbling, and pivoting, are symbolised by the mesmerising lines of the optical illusion. These lines also serve to represent the flow of energy during gameplay. By incorporating this optical illusion, the artwork adds intrigue and complexity to the site, captivating players and reminding them that reality is not always as it seems.
