Double Dutch

Double Dutch: This painting shows two portraits of post-impressionist Vincent Van Gogh, one of which is used to create the nose of the main image

  • Title: Double Dutch
  • Artist: Oleg Shuplyak
  • Date: unknown
  • Material: Oil paint
  • This painting is an optical illusion that shows two portraits of post-impressionist Vincent Van Gogh, one of which is used to create the nose of the main image. There is both the portrait, a figure of him, and young women, houses and the landscape all hidden within the work of art.
  • Born on Sep 23, 1967, in the Ternopol region of the Ukraine, Shuplyak. His passion was always painting, however, and he has used the technical precision of an architect to create these intriguing optical illusions. Often his paintings depict famous historical figures like Charles Darwin, Vincent van Gogh and William Shakespeare.
  • I chose this image because i could resist the creativity. The painting is not just a portrait or a landscape, it is both combined together in a very eye catching manner. The colors used within the peice are very beautiful and really contrast the face and the landscape. The piece is incredible and took a lot of work and concentration to complete.
