Gonzalo Borondo (Valladolid, 1989) is among the most internationally recognized urban artists and his unique public interventions are visible all over the world.
Borondo art: a true painter of our time
Grown up in Segovia, he later moved to Madrid strengthening his relationship with graffiti. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and in Madrid, where he met the painter Jose Garcia Herranz who introduced him to the Old masters of painting. Mixing installation and graffiti Borondo approaches Street Art and the public space with an innovative way. The artist has developed his own artistic language experimenting with different techniques, such as oil painting, charcoal and tempera and using a variety of supports: from hay bales, to windows, to large-scale facades. Today he is widely famous for his unique glass scratching technique. Borondo, a true painter of our time, approaches his subjects, often human figures, with an expressionistic, powerful and poetical way.
