12 Mind Bending ‘Magic Realism’ Paintings by Rob Gonsalves
Rob Gonsalves (featured previously) is a Canadian artist best known for his ‘magic realism’ paintings.
While Gonsalves’ work is often categorized as surrealistic, ‘it differs as the images are deliberately planned and result from conscious thought. Ideas are largely generated by the external world and involve recognizable human activities, using carefully planned illusionist devices. Gonsalves injects a sense of magic into realistic scenes. As a result, the term “Magic Realism” describes his work accurately. His work is an attempt to represent human beings’ desire to believe in the impossible.’ [source]
