Jeampiere Dinamarca Poque is a 29-year-old artist from Santiago, Chile, who paints women in disturbing ways. The artist creates optical illusions by painting part of the women the same color as the background, allowing him create the impression that the women are tearing themselves apart. When the final photos are taken, the illusion is complete.

“The girl cut in two occurred to me when I was about to paint,” Poque told the Daily Mail. “I started without any real plan of what I wanted to create. It was a momentary thought that sparked the idea…[and] I was able to get the result I wanted, the woman tearing herself apart. Photography is also integral to making this idea work, getting the angles of the shots right makes the art work come alive.”
