30 Mind-Bending Optical Illusion Paintings By Artist Rob Gonsalves


Art is said to be an expression of the soul. The pain, love, passion, and beliefs that can’t be put into words manifest as various forms of art. That’s why the beautiful and mind-bending illusions in Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves’ paintings have a fun way of twisting your perception with various such emotions.

Robert is well known for his magical and mind-blowing paintings because they storm your mind asking the meaning of the painting and questioning whether it is real or not. Like an optical illusion, you will see the painting from a different angle every time you look at it. One image melts into another and comes back again as a full circle, playing with your minds by creating irrational dream worlds. He was able to master the technique of “Magic Realism”, perspective and architectural art at the age of 12. He also created more advanced paintings after he met and gained experiences from Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte.
