Magical Paintings That Will Make You Look Twice

There are many types of artists in this world and each has their own particular style. For Canadian Rob Gonsalves, his particular style is what is called ‘magic realism’. His earlier training as an architect showcases his interest in buildings and the world and this is transferred into his work. His paintings also features scenery and children as well.

Taking his cue from surrealist René Magritte and bringing his own personality into the mix, Gonsalves creates stunning masterpieces that brings forth not only wonder and nostalgia but beautiful detail as well.
