Oleg Shuplyak is a lesser-known Ukrainian artist who was born in 1967. He studied architecture at the Lviv Polytechnic Institute, although painting was always his passion. His background in architecture helped him incorporate illusion into the paintings he is now famous for. Shuplyak’s trademark seems to be incorporating faces into his paintings in such a way that the viewer sees two images in one painting. This duality is evident in this oil on canvas painting titled Self Portrait.
Salvador Dali is a well-known Spanish artist who was born in 1904 and died in 1989. His early life consisted of studies focused on art, as he knew from a young age that he wanted to be a painter.

...ed by Shuplyak. There is more use of implied shape in Apparition of Face & Fruit Dish on a Beach, such as: the face created by the dish, pears that suggest wavy hair, mountains made from dog heads, and the footbridge that materializes from the dog’s collar. Whereas, Shuplyak’s piece only contains the implied shape of a bird created by the leaves. In addition, Dali’s piece uses forms of life, the dogs, in order to create the illusion of inanimate objects, the mountains.
The use of illusion appears to be a congruent theme in the works painted by the surrealists, Salvador Dali and Oleg Shuplyak. By comparison, their works have similarities, as well as differences. Both artists apply the element of implied shape to create the illusions featured in their paintings. However, the manner and style in which the illusions are created are exclusive to each of these painters.

- Salvador Dali: Vision of Hell Surrealism was the 20th century phase in art and literature of expressing subconscious in images without order or coherence, as in a dream.
