Perspective in art is a technique in which an artist represents a 3D object on a 2D surface. It is an important aspect in representational art as it renders an accurate depiction of a subject.  It creates a depth within the image, similar to an optical illusion, where the picture extends beyond the flat surface. Depth in a piece can be achieved by vanishing points and the utilization of color.

Although every human being has the ability to visually witness perspective in the physical world, it is a skill that must be learned and mastered to fully have the same effect. Each artist approaches their own vision of perspective, whether it's conveyed realistically, schematically, or symbolically resulting in a variety of interpretations.

The beauty of the human mind is that every individual has their own perspective regarding an experience. This opens the door to productive communication that then leads to understanding and acceptance.
