Good luck trying to figure out exactly what's going on in the optical illusion graffiti of Mimmo Rubino, because sometimes it's really hard to tell what's real and what's paint.

Working in alleys and abandoned parts of Rome, Italy, the artist who's also known as Flickrub holds symmetry in high esteem as he executes his deceptive street art in thick white paint. Giving trippy three-dimensional form to shapes and objects that do not exist, the optical illusion graffiti of Mimmo Rubino achieves a true trompe l'oeil.
