Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves has been drawing since he was a child. When he was a teenager, he began experimenting with paint. Influenced by Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, and Yves Tanguy, he works in a genre called “magic realism”, which suits his paintings very well. His paintings require several weeks of drawing and planning, and about three weeks of solid painting. He completes approximately four paintings a year. His paintings tell several stories, travelling out of the bounds of the first subject in the painting, and somehow back again. You can see from his paintings how he takes you on a journey.
