A True Master of Illusion – The Art of Rob Gonsalves

When you first look at any of the paintings what you appear to see actually blends into something else

Try and picture a time between sleep and wakefulness. Allow your mind to to explore past the boundaries of everyday life and optimise our imagination.

These amazing surreal artworks were all created by Canadian artist and Master of Illusion Rob Gonsalves. Gonsalves’s envisions these amazing worlds and invites us to view what pure imagination and fantasy mixed together would be like. When you first look at any of the paintings what you appear to see actually blends into something else.

Ships sails become bridge arches. What appears to be a waterfall is actually a group of female dancers. A forest blends into a cityscape full of tall skyscrapers and a rug becomes a beautiful garden.

“I enjoy painting images that make a connection between the human built environment and what occurs in nature, and this was the starting point for developing an image that expresses my affinity for what are thought of as mutually exclusive places.” – Rob Gonsalves

Since 2003, Gonsalves has released four books of his brilliant artworks. You can see more of Rob’s amazing illusion art on Facebook.
