25 Mind-Bending Optical Illusion Paintings Of Rob Gonsalves (Simply Wow!)

Rob Gonsalves was born in Toronto, Canada in 1959. During his childhood, he developed a keen interest in the development of works emerged from the imagination through various media. At twelve, his knowledge of architecture grew as he learned techniques of perspective and began to make his first paintings and depictions of imaginary buildings; the result was fantastic optical illusions.

After an introduction to Salvador Dalí and Yves Tanguy, Gonsalves began his first surrealist paintings. The focus of “Magical Realism” of Rene Magritte along with the precise perspective illusions of M.C. Escher was clear influences of his future work.

In his college years, Gonsalves worked full time as an architect, but also painted murals and theater sets. In 1990, following his victory in the Toronto Art Exhibition Gonsalves devoted himself to painting full time.

Although Gonsalves’ work is often categorized as surrealistic, it differs in that the images are deliberately planned and result from conscious thought. The ideas are generated largely by the external world and involve recognizable human activities using carefully planned illusionist devices. His work is an attempt to represent the human desire to believe in the impossible.
