Holly Williams for Art-Sheep

With a background in architecture and influenced by artists such as Dali, Tanguy, Magritte and Escher the work of Rob Gonsalves is a truly unique example of perspective illusions inserted into realistic settings, creating surrealistic images, that contain, however, the element of organization and conscious thought, rather than abstraction.

The Toronto-born artist constructs otherwise realistic scenes in such a way, so that magic springs even from the most ordinary activities, demonstrating how imagination and the human desire to dream can transform the way the world can be viewed, in a sort of “Magical Realism”. Four books with his creations have already been introduced to the public by Simon and Schuster, and some limited edition prints and original works are available through Huckleberry Fine Art.
