Overcoming Double Vision Through Art


At first glance, these gorgeous images by Pakayla Rae Biehn appear to be really impressive double-exposure photographs. What may surprise you is that they're actually photo-realistic paintings!

The San Francisco-based artist started painting double exposures because of an eye condition she was born with called Strabismus. “My paintings are based on the side effects I encounter from this condition,” Pakayla tells us in a previous interview.

“The simplest explanation of my disease is that the muscles in my eyes do not communicate with the other and each eye struggles for dominance. I can not focus both my eyes on a single point in space at the same time and this fight between them is what causes double vision.”

The stunning artwork Pakayla creates not only speaks volumes about her skills as an artist, it's a testament to the beautiful and prevalent human being she truly is.
