Ten Mind Twisting Images Of Illusion Art That Will Blow Your Mind

Magic realism or surrealism art can really blow your mind away.

What transpires in his paintings is a border of sorts between realities merging into dreams. His paintings are optical illusions that will scatter your brain with its dual art perspective. He forces your brains and eyes to work together so enjoy this mind tingling journey of ten awesome examples of Gonsalves’ optical illusion art.

5 A sea of clouds?

This is one awesome picture, is it the sea, the clouds, the ships or the kites. Look at an upward angle they become kites in a sky of clouds, lower the angle of vision they become ships on a sea. That’s crazy.

6 Cityscape

Cityscape? Only it really isn’t when you look at what the kids are doing. The backdrop is a city line if you look closely.

7 Never Never land

Doesn’t this remind you of a scene from Peter Pan where the darling kids fly off to Never Never Land? Illusion art seeks to seem what actually isn’t and Gonsalves is incredible.
