Pedro González

The artist was born in La Laguna in 1927 and his work became famous for exploring the possibilities that pictorial space offers. After spending several years in Venezuela, he founded "Nuestro Arte" together with other artists in 1963. The Icerses series stands out for its use of open and volatile colour, whilst the period known as Cosmoart led him back to experimenting with volume and composition. His teaching work took place largely at the Advanced School of Art and the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of La Laguna.
