About the artisian
When asked to describe himself, Gerald Gonzalez Jr. responds, “I am someone very nice, sensible and respectable. I have an objective to do art.” In manner and in speech, he is completely straightforward, yet his sun face designs are fanciful, full of movement and almost Baroque in style. Art of a very playful nature, from a man of serious visage.
Gerald was born in March of 1988, the second of five children. He pursued his education in banking, but found his passion lay in metal sculpture. At the age of 23, he sees art as his path to the future. He says, “From the bottom of my heart, I wish for my designs to be seen and appreciated. It is for me a great honor and a joy to do this work.”
