Gonzalo García

Born in Puebla, México in 1985, Gonzalo García's artistic journey has brought him to the vibrant heart of Mexico City, where his creative spirit thrives. Holding a Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts from Instituto Allende, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Gonzalo channels his passion into tangible expressions through painting. His work features expressive brushstrokes and muted colors, creating an aura of incompleteness, as if the figures are fading into oblivion. His visual language resembles a distant memory, an attempt of the mind to piece together elements from different times.

Gonzalo's artistic endeavors have led him to prestigious platforms, including participation in events such as the XVII Bienal Rufino Tamayo, the José y Tomás Chavez Morado Biennial of 2018, and the VI Pedro Coronel Biennial in Zacatecas. His dedication and talent earned him the FONCA’s Young Creators Scholarship three times: in 2013, 2018, and 2021. As of 2023, he became part of the Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte in the discipline of painting, a testament to his fruitful trajectory.

He has participated in numerous group shows and solo exhibitions, with notable displays like “Incendios” [Fires] (2021) at Arte Actual Mexicano Gallery in Monterrey, Mexico, “Refugios suaves” [Soft shelters] (2022) at Galería Loot in México, “FLESH” (2023) at CAM Galería in Mexico City, and “La musa enferma” [The sick muse] (2023) at Arte Actual Mexicano Gallery in Monterrey, Mexico.
