A Bent Perspective.
Robert “Rob” Gonsalves was born in 1959 in Toronto, Canada. His calendars are titled Master of Illusion and after viewing his paintings, one can see why. Even as a child he showed an interest in architecture and an appreciation of perspective. Later, after an introduction to the work of Escher, Dali and Tanguy, he began his first surrealist paintings and after an enthusiastic response in 1990 at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, Gonsalves devoted himself to painting full-time .
His work has also been called “Magic Realism”. He continues to paint and releases a calendar each year and also illustrates books for children. This is only a sampler of his work, more can be found at his website or by searching online.
