The incredibly magical realism of Robert Gonsalves, an artist who creates art that contains smooth optical illusions, will definitely make you look at them twice. The more you look at them, the more you’ll find wonderful new details about them. Robert’s fantastical illusionary paintings always contain at least two different scenes. From interior bedrooms that suddenly become howling forests to beautiful waterfalls that turn into lovely dancing ladies, these artworks are truly magical. In each and every one of these artworks that features a variety of scenes and situations, the line that separates them is a blurry one.
Robert Gonsalves skillfully brings out an innocent and childlike flavor in his paintings. Most of the time, his paintings are centered around children. They beautifully showcase the bizarre and meandering that children imagine in their heads. Without a doubt, his paintings make us travel back in time to our playful and innocent times, when life was simpler. These uniquely imaginative artworks are a direct result of Robert’s magical thinking of his youth. He states that his childhood of daydreaming and drawing has transformed into his present career. Now, in his artistic career, he creates works that celebrate imagination.
Robert Gonsalves has temporarily tried Architecture as well. However, almost three decades ago, he revisited fine arts and has been at it ever since.
