Patricio Gonzalez was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1972. Painting is his main medium but photography and decorative art are always present. Bold acrylic colours and non conventional collages are characteristics of his work.
While essentially self-taught, Patricio is always perfecting his craft through research. When he chooses his readings, he tries to balance the importance of the classics with contemporary tools and approaches.
Patricio has been producing images since 2006 when he got his first SLR camera. In 2011 after a somewhat unproductive period, he decided to go back to the drawing board, studying aesthetics and art history, looking for the laws that ruled (and rule) beauty in this world. Expressing through mixed media elements is part of that research.
He has his studio in Downtown Vancouver where he lives with his husband and his two orange cats.
