Aaron Gonzalez is an LA based artist and designer. His work focuses on the relationship between people, objects and nature. Personified house plants have become a recurring theme in his work as they are the perfect visual metaphor for these three areas of focus.
Aaron's work has been exhibited in London, New York and throughout Los Angeles. He painted a flag design for the Rockefeller Center's Flag Project, recognized by Mayor Garcetti for a poster series done in collaboration with the City of LA, and had his work shown in the World Illustration Awards hosted by the Association of Illustrators. Aaron studied Communication Arts at Otis College of Art and Design (BFA '19).
