Sara Watson (born c. 1987) is a British artist famous for her illusory, trompe-l'œil art. In May 2009, she attracted international attention when she painted a car in such a way as to "merge" it with its surroundings, thus making it "invisible".
The artwork took three weeks to complete, outside the artist's studio on the university grounds, in Preston. After completion, the car was "used for advertising by the local recycling firm that [had] donated the vehicle".
The Daily Telegraph described Watson's illusory art as "reminiscent of the work by pavement artist Julian Beever, whose [sic] attempts to trick people's minds into seeing perspective on the flat surfaces of paving stones."
