ROB GONSALVES (1959 - 2017)

Rob Gonsalves with Emily Sharbani Hamilton

6/21/2017 - In partner with Rob Gonsalves' publisher, it is with great sadness that we have to let you know our dear friend and artist, Rob Gonsalves has passed on.

Rob shared his art with the world, but more importantly he gave us the gift of imagination, creativity and a new way of looking at the everything around us. He shared with us joy, adventure and play. No matter the age, culture, background or knowledge of art someone had, he was able to create art that was able to reach out, communicate, inspire and touch so many. He was a rare soul and the world has lost an incredible human being today. Rob's legacy will continue to live on in his magical art as well as in our hearts. Rest peacefully Rob. You will be so very missed!

With much respect,
Emily-Yael Sharbani Hamilton
CEO Paragon Fine Art

"[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

Rob GonsalvesROB GONSALVES (1959 - 2017) - BIO

Rob Gonsalves' work is an attempt to represent human beings desire to believe in the impossible.

Rob Gonsalves developed an interest in drawing from imagination using various media. By age twelve, his awareness of architecture grew as he learned perspective techniques and began to do his first fine art paintings and renderings of imagined buildings. After an introduction to Artists Dali and Tanguy, 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. After an enthusiastic response in 1990 at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, Gonsalves devoted himself to painting full time.

Although Gonsalves' work is often categorized as surrealistic, it differs due to the fact 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.

Rob Gonsalves has exhibited at Art Expo New York and Los Angeles, Decor Atlanta and Las Vegas, Fine Art Forum, as well as one-man shows at Discovery Galleries, Ltd., Hudson River Art Gallery, and Kaleidoscope Gallery. June of 2003, Simon and Schuster introduced North America and Canada to Imagine a Night, Gonsalves' first hardcover book featuring sixteen paintings. Due to the success of Imagine a Night, Simon & Schuster is planning to release Imagine a Day in 2004.
