This weekend just gone reminded me of the simple soul-stirring pleasures art 🎨 and just moving the body outdoors in the park, can offer. Nature can be an amazing balm to one’s weary soul. I will write more about this later, but for now I would like to share these beautiful and mind-bending illusions just to stir your own inner artist within. They were shared by a friend on Facebook and I’d like to share them with you, here.
The paintings were created by Canadian artist, Robert Gonsalves. When you look at his work they have a surreal way of twisting your perception and causing you to question what in his paintings, if anything, is real.
Most of his stunning paintings have an unclear boundary between the multiple stories they tell, which forces the viewer to jump back and forth between them – like an optical illusion 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 misdirections. 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 and tell me which one/s you like the most (and why).
