Rob Gonslavesis a Canadian painter of magic realism with a unique perspective and style. He was born in Toronto, Ontario. As a child he developed an interest in drawing from imagination using various media. By the age of 12, his awareness of architecture grew as he learned perspective techniques and he began to create his first paintings and renderings of imagined buildings.
Gonsalves now has 70 paintings and is working on more. He spends a notable amount of time planning each piece in order to make the transitions flawless and usually finishes about four paintings each year.
His paintings have amazing detail and always have some sort of optical illusion that makes you have to take a second look. If you pay attention to the titles of the paintings, you’ll really appreciate what it is that he is depicting.
