Julio Gonzalez - Artist
I am a Caribbean born artist based out of San Angelo, Texas.
A commercial artist and graphic designer by trade in the late 90s, now I primarily work in Acrylic and Mixed Media. I am deeply interested in the exploration of the human condition and expressing these conditions as poetic, abstract, colorful vignettes. I strive to create unique pieces that are not mass produced.
I graduated from Central Texas College in 1998 with an Associates Degree in Commercial Art and worked several years as a graphic designer. During this period I also had comics published in both collegiate and local newspapers.There was a long hiatus where I did not create art but delved back into the field in 2011 when I began painting in acrylics in earnest.
Since moving to San Angelo I have been heavily involved with the Kendall Art Gallery as a member. Most recently I ended a two year term as President of the San Angelo Art Club from 2017 until 2019.
