What is a giclée?

A giclée is a digitally output (printed) copy of the original painting on either paper or canvas.  It is printed on a device with extraordinarily high resolution and then signed by the artist directly onto the paper or canvas.  Rob Gonsalves giclées are also hand-numbered from a limited edition of (generally) 195 for those on canvas and 395 for those printed on paper.

The 2017 Master of Illusion Gonsalves Wall Calendar is sold out and no longer available.

The 2016 wall calendar has 14 full size images that are 12 inches square.  One is on the cover, another is on the reverse side of the calendar, and there are 12 images for January through December 2016.  When the cover is opened, the reverse side of the cover image is above a four-month calendar for September to December 2015.  For about one dollar per image, this is the best way to collect a series of Gonsalves artwork -- while supplies last.

In its eighth year the Gonsalves wall calendar always sells out quickly.  Email us your address and we will send it at $14.99 plus $7.50 shipping in the USA.  For shipping anywhere else in the world shipping could be in the $20 to $30 range.  Email us to get a shipping price to your home no matter where you live.

Payment may be via PayPal or credit card presented by telephone or through our Live Chat link at the very bottom of this page.

"[The diver] is someone who is fascinated by the sky. By the air, the clouds, the moon. On this night, he feels like he needs to soar through the air, joining the motion of the clouds as they breezily swim by. He finds the highest rock that he dares to jump from, and dives. Although he can't see below the surface of the water and what might await him there, he knows he must trust it to provide a safe landing to his short flight.  By committing to entering the watery world of the sea, he is enabled to fully experience the euphoric joy available to him in his own celestial world.
 
[The snorkeler] is someone who is very adventurous in the sea. She confidently dives deep, exploring the life that occurs in this world that is out of sight from the surface. The appearance of the whales and their gently exhaled constellations of air remind her however that she too needs to ascend to the realm of the sky to replenish her breath.

At the point where these two connect there is the possibility of experiencing the magic of swimming in the sky, and of flying below the sea. By each exploring the world of the other, the experience of their own world is enriched."

- Rob Gonsalves

"I enjoy painting images that make a connection between the human built environment and what occurs in nature, and this was the starting point for developing an image that expresses my affinity for what are thought of as mutually exclusive places. One of the characteristics that forests and large cities share in common, that I particularly like, is a dense collection of monumentally high structures." - Rob Gonsalves

Night Lights is the fusion of two completely separate realities coexisting seamlessly as one. The bottom of the painting opens up to a quiet lake surrounded by trees. Your eyes are carried up past the treetops and land on the brightly lit cluster of stars, and this is where the magic takes shape. The view of looking up to the stars has flipped to looking down at Earth as if from a satellite with the stars transforming into the luminous cities of Europe.

Imagine A World book
Brief Bio

With the intrigue of an M.C. Escher drawing and the richness of a Chris Van Allsburg painting, renowned Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves depicts that time between sleep and wakefulness, creating a breathtaking, visual exploration of imagination and possibility that encourages us to think past the boundaries of everyday life, and see the possibilities beyond.  

His imagery invites the viewer to move past reality into a somewhat surreal depiction of what fantasy and imagination could be.  In each of his paintings, what appears to be becomes something else.  The supports of a train bridge become acrobats balanced on shoulders.  A stately home in autumn is also a tree house being constructed by children.  A child playing with a toy train sees a real train coming through the archway in his living room.  Children bouncing on beds take off in flight above a patchwork landscape.  A violinist sitting on a porch plays music to tall sunflowers which, on closer look become leafy people whose faces are in a sleepy trance. 

Artist Rob Gonsalves was born in Toronto in 1959.  During his childhood, he developed an interest in drawing from imagination using various media.  By age 12, his awareness of architecture grew as he learned perspective techniques and first began to paint renderings of imagined buildings.

After an introduction to artist Dali, Gonsalves began his first surrealist paintings.  The "magic realism" approach of Magritte along with the precise perspective illusions of Escher came to be influences in his future work.  In his post college years, Gonsalves worked full time as an architect, also painting trompe l'oeil murals and theatre sets.

Although Gonsalves' work may appear to be surrealistic, it differs in that the images are deliberately planned and result from conscious thought.  Ideas are largely generated by the external world and involve recognizable human activities, using carefully planned illusionist devices. Gonsalves injects a sense of magic into realistic scenes. As a result, the term "magic realism" describes his work accurately. His work is an attempt to represent human beings' desire to believe in the impossible.
