Julio Gonzalez is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist. His work stems from the exploration into his mixed heritage. Born of a Honduran mother and Mexican father while growing up in the South during the 80's, his experience is one of being from somewhere else. His practice relies on constantly asking "what if?" and embracing the random.
I create art because it is meditative and it helps me think through my observations of the world. What I am most interested in is looking at the present and future through the lens of my history and culture. I utilize Mexican and Mayan design aesthetics to create works that explore our modern human experiences. I aim to create visually pleasing work as a way to introduce discussion of ideas and concepts that can be uncomfortable for most.
