A. Andrew Gonzalez is an internationally reknowned figurative visionary artist. His work can be found in museums, galleries and collections worldwide, both public and private.

He's known for the unique sculptural look of his paintings, as well as their power to move and inspire the viewer. Painting is typically an additive process, in which layer after layer builds an image. Gonzalez turns this truism on its head with a process developed through years of trial and error. His technique involves a gesso-like surface, transparent paints and an array of erasers. He has been teaching his unique painting technique for six years, most recently at the Visionary Art Academy in Vienna, Austria.

The artist describes his style as “a revival of the Pre-Raphaelite aesthetic" and “mystical love poems to the soul”. His focus is on the figure as both temple and vessel, sublimed by transformative forces. He captures his subjects suspended in an ecstatic moment; poised on the threshold of a new birth.
