From his studio in Lexington, KY Enrique Gonzalez brings to life art that inspires, evokes emotions, and overflows in color and movement. A native from Venezuelan Amazonian Rainforest, Enrique finds inspiration for his work in everyday things that surround him which then are translated with his brush and bright pigments to unique works on canvas. His style is modern impressionism.
Some of his most recognized work is equine art. His paintings of horse races at Keeneland, Churchill Downs, and the Red Mile are recognized and favored by local clients. Other favorites include bright feathered peacocks, panoramic landscapes, musical instruments, and portraits. Enrique also commissions his work to clients specific needs and requirements.
Enrique strongly believes in the importance of community involvement. He volunteers his time and donates art work to many local organizations and charities. He recently started a tv show called Painting with Enrique to share his technique and inspire people across demographics to express themselves through painting. In Kentucky, Enrique is not only known for his art, he is also well known as the lead singer of the band Big Maracas which delights its followers with an eclectic mix of tropical jazz rhythms.
