All too often we hear of artists being inspired by something positive and enriching, but what about anger, heartbreak and a dash of revenge.
Worry not, though! Agust Gonzalez is not necessarily vengeful or anything like that. In fact, when I met him, he turned out to be quite an awesome guy. His angle…anger being channeled to bring out his creative art mode.
“I can’t be happy and draw,” said Gonzalez.
A confident man who doesn’t show himself to be boastful or prideful, he now shares his art to the local world with hopes of creating more artistic work that tell the all important back story of his once lost but now found true love.
Once the love of his life returned back, it wasn’t long before the art opening he worked so hard for that he told her “just to let you know, this is about you.”
“The only reason I started doing it was because the love of my life left…one she left, I simply bought some art supplies and got back into work and worked,” said Gonzalez.
Agust Gonzalez is a unique artist who has been drawing and honing his craft for multiple years since his childhood.
After years of practice, he takes what we know now as some of the most popular characters in cartoons and merges them into an abstract and eye-catching type of mural.
Over a month he came up with the work that was shown in the photographs taken. The nights were long with few days of actual sleep.
Gonzalez allowed his experience to lead him to a very profound thought that all of us could take into our creative and personal lives: “stop mopping, stop crying and stop being sad; do something.”
