Read about Alan Manuel Gonzalez
Alan Manuel Gonzalez has dedicated himself to painting since an early age. He coursed his artistic studies at the Vocational School of Paulita Concepción, graduating in 1986, and he then studied at The San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, where he graduated in 1990. He works in a realistic style, which he transforms into symbolic narratives due to his handling of the subjects. He compels the viewers to reflect upon his paintings, which comment on the social and political situations of his country, but at the same time relate to the human condition lived by many throughout the world. Gonzalez works mainly in acrylic, yet his rendering and handling of the material cause a sort of trompe-l’oeil in the viewer, where a second look is necessary to take in the magnificent talent of this great artist.
