The majority of people love the various types of puzzles, and today I’d like to present you one of such masterpieces. I`ll tell you about the optical illusions of the amazing paintings, created by the famous Ukrainian artist Oleg Shuplyak.
The author of these unusual works describes them as “images with hidden sense” and this title is completely justified. The paintings of Shuplyak are mainly with hidden sense, because against the background of one picture there is another one – “hidden”, – which becomes noticeable when you look at it more attentively.
For example, on the painting titled “The spirit of freedom” we can see a Cossack with a pandora (Ukrainian pizzicato musical instrument) sitting on the bank of a river. But when we look more attentively, we will be able to see Taras Shevchenko – the famous Ukrainian poet, writer and artist. Or there is another picture – “On the stage”, – which at first sight shows us a beautiful girl and a man during some drama on the scene. But when we look deeply, we will see William Shakespeare – the greatest poet and playwright of England.
There many such paintings of Shuplyak, on which you can find famous people from Ukraine and other countries (Lesya Ukrainka, Bohdan Lepky, Nicolaus Copernicus, Isaac Newton, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Auguste Renoir and many other), but nevertheless they are all incredibly amazing and attract attention of people from all over the world.
For me, it’s a high art, which not only demonstrates some beautiful landscapes or scenes from our life, but also contains some mystery, which has to be revealed by us. And what is your opinion towards Shuplyak’s paintings?
