Artist Octavio Ocampo: The Skilled Master of Illusions

Octavio Ocampo is one of Mexico's most prolific surreal artists who, in my opinion, creates paintings that greatly stand out from other surreal works of art. His skills, probably inspired by his artistic family, were initially expressed through papier-mache figures and murals. Eventually, his art developed into his well-known intricate, "metamorphic-style" paintings. What is so striking and unique about his paintings is the illustrative detail they contain - it is practically up to the viewer's own curiosity to interpret them, which is a lot harder than it sounds. Some contain optical illusions, while others are made up of various tiny images, that can easily play tricks on your eyes.

Enjoy this collection of the best works by Ocampo, and expect a visual surprise with each one! See more of this artist's work here
