Bird Paintings Frank Gonzales

Frank Gonzales was born in Tempe, Arizona where for four years he trained under master painter Jim Garrison. Gonzales for his wonderful talent got rewarded with a scholarship by the Laguna College of Art and Design. The series of acrylic paintings of owls and birds perched on plants and crystalline formations are reminiscent of Audubon's style, but his signature bold and colorful drips of paints make his work unique.

Frank shares about his work, "My work is about taking forms in nature and making them my own. What I do is nothing new, but by using the language of color, composition, fragmentation, and representation my aim is to speak about these known elements and present them from a different perspective."

His original paintings and art prints are available through galleries listed on this link. You can follow him on Instagram where he shares behind the scenes pictures of his work and updates his new creative projects.
