Patrick Gonzales is an artist based in Dijon, France. His work is a distinctive combination of photography and digital painting. His artistic journey started at an early age, evolving from music to the visual arts. He explored drawing, art history and painting for 20 years. He developed his own style while in parallel he perfected his craft by replicating works by the great masters. In 1998 he migrated to digital art. His work sits delicately at the boundary between painting and photography, two frequent antagonists. He considers himself close to the pictorial photographers of the early days of photography.
