Three-Dimensional Paintings by Mad King (a.k.a. Jake Johanson)

Using metallic paints and multiple sheens of poly-acrylic sealer, the self-taught artist Mad King creates a truly mind-bending optical illusion paintings.

“He starts by mapping out geometric shapes and repeat patterns, carefully positioning every element so as to successfully build a convincing illusion. Afterwards, he layers birds, fish, and other living things on top and within the background.”
