NEW MUTATIONS visualism style

Visualism style by Vidal Toreyo

Vidal Toreyo uses optical effects in his visualism style artworks. Applies deep dark, matte fragments. Elements of the painting with thick metallic paint, with an expressive drawing. Others, covered with thick glass varnish, emit intense reflections – the color covered with them disappears and the reflected light appears.

Additionally, metallic surfaces have their own unique color, for example, they shine with aluminum, copper and gold. Additionally, the unique painting technique used by the artist when viewed closely, creates the impression of depth and vibrating movement. Vidal Toreyo offers us an optical illusion image,  moreover that is in constant interaction with the viewer.

Visualism is a very unique variety of abstraction. Visualism is often otherwise known as optical art. It is an art direction whose task is to influence the viewer’s vision. This direction belongs to the trend of abstract painting. Influencing the viewers' intellect or emotions is of less importance. Vidal Toreyo uses optical illusions and light effects in his painting. Toreyo offers us a living Visualism image that is in constant interaction with the viewer and that is constantly changing. 

Vidal Toreyo –  Optical illusions

A mirage is a fascinating reflection and light absorption phenomenon. A very changeable phenomenon – depending on the place from which it is viewed. Lighting is very important, it has the greatest impact on the viewer’s perception. The picture is constantly changing creating not only illusions, but vibrating, pulsating.

Optical illusions occur as a result of the brain misinterpreting the image under the influence of contrast, shadows, and the use of colors. This phenomenon causes the brain to be mistaken automatically. In other words, delusions arise from the automatic mechanisms of perception that usually aid perception. Our mind learns pattern behaviors, which is why it sometimes interprets phenomena unexpectedly. It can be an interesting tool in creating works of art.
