About the Artist
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, John Gonzales started making art in high school and continued his studies at the Art Institute of Dallas. He states that his work “deals with evoking the emotion of the battle of good and evil over ones soul. Expressing a balance and depth that is attainable within each of our hearts. My mediums of choice are acrylic on finished Birchwood, sometimes layered to expand on the natural depth and shape of each piece.” In addition to his paintings, John also creates Designer Toy Skulls. John credits his “non-traditional style” to his experiences through screen printing and poster creation. He started Diablo Texas: “As a digital concept artist by trade, Diablo Texas lets me express my creative abilities through 3D computer modeling, painting, urban vinyl toys and a truly expanded. “Changarrito” is a vending cart and mobile gallery. There are multiple Changarrito carts circulating throughout the world- all with the same objective of promoting of original artwork to the general public.
