Optical illusion makes viewers' 'brains hurt' – can you see the real illustration?


AN optical illusion is making some viewers' brains hurt, leaving some wondering if they can see the real illustration.

Artist Erik Johansson is responsible for the latest image blowing the minds of Reddit users.

The optical illusion was posted to Reddit, with dozens of users commenting on how it effects their brains.

"This is a good illustration of the limitations of the human brain. This is just a flat white canvas with pigment applied, but it's virtually impossible for our brain to process it as such,"

"Well executed, beautiful work," someone else wrote.

But not everyone was as quick to commend the art behind the illusion. Some found the image difficult to view.

Some users took note of the artist's influence.
