25 Mind-Twisting Optical Illusion Paintings By Rob Gonsalves

The beautiful and mind-bending optical illusions in Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves’ paintings have a fun way of twisting your perception and causing you to question what in his cool drawings, if anything, is real.

Most of his stunning optical illusion drawings have an unclear boundary between the multiple stories they tell, which forces the viewer to jump back and forth between them – like an eye trick that changes every time you look at it.

Gonsalves’ interest in art began at an early age, which is why he became comfortable with painting such complex brain tricks. He had experience with technique and perspective and architectural art by the age of 12. When he encountered Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte, they clearly left a lasting impact on his amazing paintings as well. Take a look at his astonishing illusion drawings below!

Amazing! The style and illusion makes me think of the illustrations in Chris Van Allsburg's children's books.
