Look closely at the work of Oleg Shuplyak and you will eventually be able to see beyond the actual painting to find the optical illusion hidden within its depths. Oleg Shuplyak has made them pretty obvious so that people will most likely find the hidden portraits instantly. Oleg Shuplyak's work features famous faces throughout the centuries.

For instance, Oleg Shuplyak paints historical figures such as artist Salvador Dali, psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and naturalist Charles Darwin into deceptively scenic oil paintings through strategically placed objects, coloring, shadows and composition. The portraits are very reminiscent of Magic Eye posters.

Based in Ukraine, Oleg Shuplyak's optical illusion oil paintings are currently being sold at the Amsterdam Art Gallery.
