This Surreal Artist Creates Unbelievable Optical Illusions

Octavio Ocampo, a prolific surrealist painter, has become famous for his use of metamorphic painting. His paintings leave much interpretation open to the viewer's curiosity and can be seen multiple ways, depending on your distance from his paintings, their angles, and so on.

He creates his paintings by superimposing and juxtaposing realistic and figurative details. Sometimes these come as small images woven together to create a larger image. Others are more like optical illusions, allowing the brain to play a game with the paintings. Ocampo terms it as "metamorphic style." He truly is a skilled master of illusions.
