Gonzalo González is one of the Canarian creators with a most consolidated trajectory and within his generation, the most internationally. Painting, drawing and sculpture are the disciplines which has devoted more attention.
He is creator of a powerful work, inserted in the vanguard that emerged from great European romantic lineage.
Landscape, vegetal forms, architectures or sky are in the middle of a work characterized by a huge technical competence and a rare ability to question about the true nature of reality in dialogue with different visual languages.
He has exhibited in many art galleries in the Canary Islands, Iberian Peninsula, Europe and America. First class cultural institutions have his works in their collections.
