33 Mind-Bending Paintings That Will Boost Your Creativity

Canadian artist Robert Gonsalves has spent decades perfecting his art, which intends to celebrate imagination and twist our perceptions of reality in a single glance. These beautiful, mind-twisting illusions are deep, complex, interesting and cause the viewer to swing between decisions about where the boundaries of realism and fantasy collide and blur.

Gonsalves’ interest in art began when he was just 12 years old, when he began to experiment with how many different themes and layers he could combine into his pictures. As I’m sure any art lover can see, his encounters with works by Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte clearly had an impact.

Since he began creating his unique paintings they have resulted in three children’s books and have been shown around the world. Take a look and let us know if Gonsalves’ gets your creativity flowing!
