González, born in Curico, Chile in 1947, is best known for his murals focused on social justice and is one of the founding members and stylistic influences of the Brigada Ramona Parra, a Chilean muralist collective. González studied at the Experimental Art School of Santiago, where he specialized in painting and was influenced by painters such as David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera. He later studied Theatrical Design at the School of Fine Arts at the University of Chile, and served as the lead scenic painter for Chile’s Teatro Municipal in the 1980s. González has lectured internationally about his iconic public artwork.
