Mauricio Gonzalez was born in 1978 in Havana and arrived in the United States in 2000. Predominately a painter, his work reflects an integrated practice of autobiographical origin that challenges and demystifies painting. Gonzalez received a BFA in painting from New World School of Arts, Miami. His recent solo exhibitions include Show me your Ballerinas at Fredric Snitzer Gallery, Miami (2015), Incommensurability Studies at Cardi Black Box Gallery, Milan, and Speed of Life, at Fredric Snitzer Gallery (both 2012). Recent group exhibitions include Last Exit: Paiting, Bakehouse Art Complex, Miami (2015); VOX III, Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia (2013); and Merzbau-Now, Fredric Snitzer Gallery (2011). Gonzalez’s work has been acquired by the Martin Margulies Collection, Miami, and by the Cohen Family Collection, New York, among others. He is represented by Fredric Snitzer Gallery in Miami, where he lives and works.
