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.
