The Woods Within
Artist Rob Gonsalves was born in Toronto, Canada. In his early years after college, he worked as an architect and painter of murals and theater sets. He eventually began painting full time. Influenced by Salvador Dali, Yves Tanguy, René Magritte and M.C. Escher, Gonsalves' surrealist painting style features perspective illusions that are carefully pre-planned. The artist refers to his style as "Magical Realism," and describes it via his website as "an attempt to represent human beings’ desire to believe in the impossible."
Gonsalves' work has been used as the basis of three children's books, Imagine a Night, Imagine a Day, and Imagine a Place.
