JOAQUÍN GONZÁLEZ

  • ARTIST'S BIOGRAPHY

    Born in La Habana, Cuba 1957

     

    Painter and also master print maker, Gonzalez  graduated from the “Academia de San Alejandro” in  La Habana in 1981. He went into exile to Spain in 1992, choosing Madrid as the city  where he lived for 7 years. There, he worked  in the engraving studio of Oscar Manesi, coming into working contact with known Spanish Artists Carlos Saura, Rafael Canogar, Cesar Galicia, Luis Gordillo amongst others. He came to Miami in 1999 where he still works and resides.

     

    Since 2005 he has been traveling to the Amazonian region of Peru, coming into close contact with the indigenous “chipibo” community,  where he finds the inspiration for his most recent artworks. And also  participating in the rites of “knowledge” and “healing” from the “Ayahuasca” and other herbs considered sacred.

     

     In his latest artworks, of an unmistakable style and mainly abstracts, one can feel in the colors the heat of the jungle. That  jungle that he has walked and experienced.  He paints the Amazon River,  the Sunrise, the Sunset and the activities of the local indigenous community:  whether fishing, playing, walking.  The vibrant colors and the primitive figures in some of the works makes us think that they could also be creatures from other worlds, another dimension or part of a dream.
