Jose A Gonzalez
Jose A. Gonzalez is a professional Artist based in Yonkers, New York. Growing up Jose struggled with Anxiety, which in turn effected his public communication. It was through Art, that allowed Jose to expand and be able to communicate and impact people’s lives. Through his creative skill and imagination, Jose has been able to portray beauty, emotional power, and portray life settings using vibrant colors alongside whimsical characters.
Jose was inspired by the circumstances of being raised in South Yonkers; where he experienced hard times. He grew up with a rough crowd, in a decaying environment where it all forced him to “Be Creative!” Tenement buildings, housing projects, abandoned lots all became a playground.
“The single struggling mothers who walk to and from the supermarket with their kids, the father who managed to beat the odds and support his family. The graffiti on the walls, the wide variety of music heard through apartment windows and passing cars.” “Through the rough surface there still is a soft core, with beautiful resilient and resourceful people who manage to have a good time no matter how hard they have it.”
Jose doesn’t limit himself to just one style because like his environment his creative energy is diverse, it changes. He is fascinated by how quick the scenery changes from just a ride down Broadway. The ride from sleepy river towns; like Hastings, all the way down to Times Square is an experience.
It is equally beautiful and ironic how much diversity, how much culture and how many different neighborhoods exist on this one road.
