Optical Illusion Paintings

Ukrainian artist Oleg Shuplyak creates amazing optical illusion paintings.

Different elements painted in specific locations come together to form a second picture of a bird, human face, or human body.

It is possible to see two distinct images in each painting.

    THese are cool! I love optical illusions that plays with the eyes. I’ve always wanted to do something like these but never got around to do them.

  3. The Thinking Insomniac

    APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! This is great work… great is an understatement..

    Some of these are really hard to shake, like the naked lady/river into a lake.
    And some are hard to find, like the one with the swan.

  5. Sharyn

    What is the illusion in #2? I just can’t seem to figure out what, if anything, is hidden. All of the others are good, particularly the swam and flutist after it.

  9. Shandya

    I really love the tribute painting to Vincent Van Gogh. As I’m a fan of Van Gogh too. :)

    David: The 2nd one is a skull with it’s mouth open.

  11. Christina

    The Van Gogh illusion portrait is AMAZING! BRAVO!

  12. Gert

    All of them are excellent though a couple seem overly contrived. I’d say the theme within a theme worked very well for the one of John Lennon especially.

  13. Dominic

    Cataclysmic greatness… Good find Toxel!
