The magical realism of artist Robert Gonsalves will make you do a double take. From one glance to another, his fantastical surreal paintings display at least two different scenes.
Often, the main characters are children, and the scenes are reminiscent of the bizarre, meandering scenarios that kids make up in their head.
This is directly influenced by the magical thinking of his youth.
“A childhood of daydreaming and drawing.” “ It has evolved into a career of making paintings that are primarily a celebration of imagination.” -Gonsalves
Gonsalves’ compelling optical illusion art has found a natural place in the publishing world.
