Magic Realism in Surreal Paintings

Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves had two things growing up, a love for daydreaming and a love for art.  As he grew older he managed to combine these two aspects of himself into his art.  As well as a surreal feel, his art also has an optical illusion side to it, where your eyes and brain have to do a double take in order to process the image.  Gonsalves calls his style Magic Realism and the paintings below will definitely show you why.  Dreaming is an enjoyable emotion that is almost free, the only thing it is going to cost you is time, a price worth paying for...
