As though inspired by the blueprints of a master architect or perhaps a certain film by the name of 'The Matrix,' American artist Damien Gilley creates mind-boggling trompe l'oeils that play with people's perceptions in a delightful way. Gracing the walls of galleries, Damien Gilley's work may seem like three dimensional creations (and some of them are), but they are mainly flat-based.

Strategically using vinyl and latex materials, Damien Gilley's work appears to jump right off of the wall like a doorway portal the the Holodeck from 'Star Trek.' Whether working with neon hues or a more traditional blueprint colorway, he manages to mesmerize people instantly.

Damien Gilley is a multi-disciplinary artist and educator in Portland, Oregon. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
