Studio Space for the Creative Industries
Parade Presents is a pop-up exhibition programme of solo shows that promote the most exciting emerging talents in contemporary art at this moment in time. This event will feature the work of René Gonzalez, a Costa Rican native and London based figurative artist.
Gonzalez’s work is primarily concerned with the aesthetics of portraiture, and more specifically the depiction of his modern day influences and idols, shown through a visual expression of the heroic, with the classical conventions of glorification and prestige. This highlights his respect and honour for the Scientists and Hip Hop Artists he so admires.
Gonzalez embellishes his paintings with intricate and ornate backgrounds; the strong colour palettes reflected the vibrant urban environment of his home town in Costa Rica. Through combining the classical style of portraiture with his modern, street art influences, his icons are elevated in a unique and explosive way.
