The Artist Who Deceives Your Eyes

Some refer to the style of drawing practised by Rob Gonsalves, the well-known artist from Canada, as ’surrealism’. However, we think ’magical realism’ might be more appropriate. The strange, unnoticed union between different but equally real worlds and the subtle but impossible transformations of objects are the thread which runs through all of Gonsalves’ paintings. He reminds us through his brilliant work that everything around us is in some ways interconnected. We picked some of this wonderfully talented artist’s most astounding illusionary landscapes for you to ponder.
