Biography / Borondo

From glass art to street art, Spanish artist Gonzalo Borondo covers and merges both fields. While his murals are made of sweeping, expressive brushstrokes, he as off lately has brought a yet unseen technique to the streets, paint-covered glass panels the artist scratches to make his artistic subjects come to life. Borondo’s work is featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Born in 1989, Gonzalo Borondo started painting in the open space as early as 2007. Beginning as a tagger first, he changed the means of his artistic expression after studying fine arts in Rome and Madrid. He got in touch with charcoal, oil paint and tempura and brought these new ways of articulating his artistic philosophy to the street. Gonzalo Borondo’s artworks are full of meaning, some works more subliminal than others, but they never leave the viewers indifferent. Be it in his earth-toned murals, his glass etchings or even art books Borondo infuses urban art with new life thanks to a more traditional way to perceive art and the impact art can have on the viewer.
