Optical Illusion Paintings by Toronto, Canada based artist Rob Gonsalves. During his childhood, he developed an interest in drawing from imagination using various media. By age twelve, his awareness of architecture grew as he leaned perspective techniques and began to do his first paintings and renderings of imagined buildings.
In Gonsalves’ work, he injects a sense of magic into realistic scenes. His surrealistic work is an attempt to represent human beings desire to believe is the impossible.
