Osvaldo Gonzalez

Bio

Osvaldo González is a self-taught artist born in Argentina. Working in a melancholic vein, he creates whimsical and surreal pieces of digital art, showing complex and emotional scenarios of the human condition and strange dreamlike figurations.

He has a knack for creating dark mysterious stories. His use of layering to incorporate depth, tonal qualities, and aged effects are decisive and work together to produce otherworldly narrative moments with a delicate and detailed sense of atmosphere and transparency.

His passion for the ancient is present in his mixed media work. He uses acrylics, clay, found objects, to obtain dark compositions. He currently lives in Hollywood, Florida.

Statement

“The most important thing for me is the act of creating a good concept and bringing it to reality. The creation of a good idea is the celebration of art, the choice of a medium is only a complement. I like to mix drawings, photos, and incorporate found objects in my compositions. I always strive for an ‘antique’ photographic look”.

Osvaldo Gonzalez

“The surrealism of Osvaldo’s dreamscapes is grounded by his restrained color palette. There’s a highly personal and weirdly compelling style on display here.”
