Rob Gonsalves was born in Toronto, Canada. He started drawing at an early age, but by 12, his awareness of architecture developed and he gained techniques for perspective, so he ventured into surrealist painting. His paintings have amazing detail and always have some sort of optical illusion that makes you have to take a second look. If you pay attention to the titles of the paintings, you'll really appreciate what it is that he is depicting.
This is simply stunning art!
