Born in Tarapoto, in the Amazon, in 1982 into an Indigenous, Chinese, and Hispanic family, it was the cloud forest environment as well as the local myths and legends and the way of life of the locals that inspired much of Gonzalez" early work. However, in 2002 he experienced his first session of ayahuasca, the Amazonian psychotropic plant brew. It was led by a shaman from the native Quechua Lamista community. This experience introduced him to ‘another reality" and radically changed his life and work. His way of seeing the world was no longer the same and his painting underwent a profound metamorphosis where humans, nature and the spirits live harmoniously.
