A Modern Surrealist Painter Creates Magical Worlds

Rob Gonsalves, a modern surrealist painter has been envisioning these spectacular worlds since he was just 12 years old. As a child, Gonsalves was introduced to the artwork of Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte, which inspired him greatly.

Rob’s paintings are whimsical and captivating. One can view his art and see different worlds wrapped up all into one painting. His artistic style challenges the viewer’s perception and demands that the viewer ask what, if anything, about the image is real. Many of the paintings have children as their subjects, one can speculate that these paintings serve to encapsulate the “boundless imagination” that describes the season of childhood for many.

What do you think? How do these paintings inspire you?
