Canadian artist,Â Rob Gonsalves, creates mind blowing works of art which are well planned optical illusions. You may be looking at one section of the painting which than morphs into something that seems irrational and out of this world!
Optical illusion are fascinating! They also teach us about our visual perception, and its limitations. Emphasis here is on the beauty of perceptual phenomena, on interactive experiments, and explanation of the visual mechanisms involved â€“ to the degree that they are understood.
Rob has been drawing since he was a child and by the age of twelve he was mastering amazing technique with a profound knowledge of perspective and architecture. When he found the works ofÂ Salvador Dali and RenÃ© Magritte, that inspired him to turn towardsÂ surrealism and optical illusions.
