Want see something mind blowing? Take a look at the incredible painting made by Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves who have a fun way of twisting your perception and causing you to question what in his paintings, if anything, is real. The most obvious feature of Gonsalves’s painting is there is no clear boundary between the multiple stories Gonsalves tries to tell, which forces the viewer to jump back and forth and give a kind of optical illusion.
If you like this series, you probably will also enjoy the other optical illusion works on our site.
Schleicherlaufen is held every five years in Telfs. Fathers, sons and brothers – only man are allowed to take part in the actual Fasnacht – are they constructing the displays for the various floats, making or repairing costumes or rehearsing, for in Telfs everything has to be recited by heart. The women sew, clean, darn and polish. Practically all of the town’s 10.000 inhabitants are involved in some way. Below are some photos from the festival in the western Austrian town of Telfs February 1, 2015. Pretty wild, right?

In the “Inkeraction” series, artist Alex Solis created a character going one-on-one with himself. The illustrated character doesn’t like be punched head or squeezed to the corner of the page, hence he fights back as he clamps his teeth down onto the artist’s thumb or uses his knife to take a stab at him.
When asked what he wants people to take away from the series, he says, “I want people to, in a way, know that art is a bit more then just lines on a paper. Even though it’s not real, I want people to have that feeling that this actually is happening. I also just want people to like it and share it with their friends. I love the idea of being able to not only connect and interact with my work, but with whoever is following the series, making them feel like they’re a part of it.”
