Robert Gonsalves is a Canadian artist who loved to play with optical illusions. His paintings are surreal works that, thanks to a masterly use of perspective, catapults the spectator into two different dimensions.
His fantastic worlds overlap with reality, creating a spectacular effect that fascinates everyone.
Although he is often categorized as a surrealist, his works have a slightly different character, as a result of conscious thoughts and intentional optical effects. The definition “Magic realism” is the one that best suits his art, the result of a real triumph of imagination.
Unfortunately, Robert left us on June 14th, 2017, leaving behind a series of surreal works that will surely capture your attention. You can find them on his official Facebook page and on Huckleberry Fine Art.
