An optical illusion is when you see something that does not exist or that is different than it appears. You trust your eyes but with certain misdirection they can play tricks on you.
Rob Gonsalves is a famous painter from Toronto, Canada. His works of art are recognizable for their magic realism and mind-bending optical illusions. Gonsalves’ paintings have a way of twisting your perception and causing you to question what you are actually looking at. Gonsalves’ interest in art began at the age of 12, which gave him a lifetime of experience to paint with such complexity.
Salvador Dali and Yves Tanguy had a great influence on Gonsalves as you can see with his use of misdirection in his optical illusions.
