Octavio Ocampo's Beautiful and Amazing Illusion Paintings

Octavio Ocampo (Feb, 1943)is a Mexican painter known for his evocative paintings in which detailed images are intricately woven together to create larger images - the optical illusions fading back and stepping forward as you study the pieces, notice the details, and finally recognize the large scale intention. This is what Octavio Ocampo terms his "metamorphic" style. Most of this text was lifted from Ocampos' Wiki here.

The paintings in the gallery provide a glimpse of Ocampo's tremendous skill as an illusion master. Look closely at each painting and you will see several images hidden in every single one.
