Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves explores childlike stories of wonder through his surrealist paintings, capturing peeks of one’s internal daydreams through dual scene optical illusions. The works express both the real and the imaginative, painting a space where one can explore beyond physical limits. In his pieces inspired by the work of MC Escher and Magritte, subjects discover secret gardens hidden in carpets, forests just beyond the border of living rooms, and castles in misty lagoons.
