My name is Jose Gonzalez and I began to draw in Kindergarten and loved being creative. Throughout elementary and middle school I won various art contests using pencil drawings of Martin Luther King, Jr., Roberto Clemente, a famous Hispanic baseball player, and Einstein to name a few. My art teacher would request me out of class and assist on nearly every stage design for holiday assemblies and talent shows. At one point I wanted to be an art teacher. During this time, and in the beginning stages of Hip Hop, I was drawn to Graffiti, no pun intended, which helped my use of color, composition and concepts .
During my high school years I continued my passion with design and attended a gifted and talented school, Arts High School, in Newark, NJ. There I continued to win many art contests within the state and received a full scholarship for design at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).
Since my high school days I continued to draw and doodle in my art books until I used Adobe Photoshop for the first time in 1995. My life changed that day and I began to incorporate digital design to my traditional design background.
While in high school and thereafter, I was a regular at Pearl Paint on Canal Street in NYC and started a journey into silk screening t-shirts. I would get my screens burned and mounted on the fifth floor of the iconic art store.
Today, I'm still a student of design and growing with the ever changing world of being a creative with Graphic/Web Design, UX/UI Design, but all still begins in my art pad with a pencil and Flair Pen. Read Less

I primarily use Instagram to display my work because of it's simpler and cleaner way to communicate using social media. Please follow me here: https://www.instagram.com/josefreshsol/
