must know.

everyone must know about Gonzalo Papantonakis. Originally from Uruguay papantonakis has travelled the wold and now resides in los angeles, with a home in argentina.  His work mixes images and words, but takes it to a new level attempting to show the viewer the music. he has taken his two great loves, music and art, and is successfully  “incorporating music into a visual medium”.  he has had quite the number of shows in New York and Argentina… the first time i saw his work in person was at gallery nine 5 in Soho.  the canvases are large, demanding your attention and hold your interest with the skillful layering, color, words partially seen and use of line.  he is an inspiration.
