Raymundo Gonzalez was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. As a child he was exposed to the rich supply of architectural, cultural, and artistic displays that were part of his hometown. Borrowing from the inﬂuences of Guadalajara, it’s no surprise that Gonzalez pursued a life and career in the arts.
Soon after receiving a degree in Art at the Academy of Art in Veracruz, Gonzalez graduated from the Autonomous University of Morelos’ School of Architecture. He began practicing architecture but continued painting and drawing on the side. He made the transition from architect to full-time artist when a gallery owner wished to exhibit one of his paintings. Gonzalez has participated in a number of exhibits in Mexico, Holland, Ireland and the United States.
