Ramon Bruin, born in 1981 in Alkmaar, the Netherlands, is known for his 3d drawings. In 2012 Ramon gained worldwide recognition for his own unique style called ‘Optical Illusionism’. Since then his artwork has been shown in over 70 countries. He creates a photocomposition by combining drawing by hand with photography in which the art comes to life. He is able to make the most simple drawing come to life or create complex 3d artwork in which people have to look twice to understand the surrealistic image.
His pieces have been bought by collectors all over the world and can be found in America, Japan, Australia, England, Kenia and Germany. Well known collectors such as the president of Azerbaijan's daughter, mrs Leyla Aliyeva, have acquired pieces by Ramon who considers himself to be very lucky.
