Optical Illusion Paintings by Artist Robert Gonsalves

Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves creates paintings that seamlessly combine two separate realities. Despite sticking to the same formula for each image, a style heavily inspired by artists like Escher, Dali, and Magritte, they’re all immensely satisfying. I might not put these on my wall but I feel like I’ll be thinking about them every night before bed for the rest of my life. Have a look at lots more below.

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
