22 Optical Illusions That Belong in Lucid Dreams

Everyone loves a good trick of the eye... but these paintings by Rob Gonsalves seem to be sprung straight from lucid dreams.

 

Lately I've become a touch obsessed with the optical illusion paintings of Canadian artist, Rob Gonsalves.

Maybe it's their surreal nature. Or maybe it's the mockery of perspective. Gonsalves has spent decades perfecting his art, aiming to spark the imagination and jolt our expectations of reality at once.

Check out the surprising results in these 22 visionary paintings. They're great lucid dream fodder.
