This Optical Illusion Marriage Proposal Is One Of The Most Creative Ones We've Seen

A memory that will last forever.

Upon first glance, this marriage proposal might look just like a painting. But take a second look, and you'll start to see the real-life people emerging from the art.  

According to The Huffington Post, artist Alexa Meade helped transform Dan Levine and his girlfriend into living works of art for a memorable surprise proposal. 

Meade paints "directly on top of [her] subjects to create the illusion that real people and 3D spaces appear as a 2D painting," according to her Instagram account. She used black and white acrylic paint to cover the couple's clothing and bodies and make them appear like a street art optical illusion.

She "even managed to covertly paint a shadow on Cordova's ring finger," The Huffington Post reports.

Then, in a video uploaded to YouTube, the couple stands against an all-white garage, posing for photographs. 

From behind the camera, Levine's girlfriend is asked to stand and pose while Levine slyly adjusts his position and prepares for the proposal.
