The Phenomenon of Floating

When you see Rob Gonsalves work, it causes an optical illusion with a dreamy atmosphere. Rob Gonsalves is a Canadian painter of Magic Realism. That is, he injects a sense of magic into realistic scenes.

He was influenced by surrealist painter Salvador Dali and Yves Tanguy and started to paint with his unique styles when he was sixteen. Different from previous surrealism, his work is comprised of precisely planned and deliberate compositions. His paintings show reality and unreality at the same time, yet they are naturally combined and don’t feel awkward. Even though he depicts two subjects on a canvas, both are very clear and distinctive.

It is more interesting to enjoy his works with their titles!
