Meet the Artist
Though his hometown is Alexandria Virginia, Fernando Gonzalez spent his childhood years in Guadalajara Mexico. The exemplary art culture in Mexico exposed Fernando to his future passion in art. He moved back home to the states and began drawing throughout his teen years. He would draw pieces for friends and family. It was then he realized he could make something out of his passion for artwork. A few years down the road, Fernando began to paint murals for businesses throughout the metropolitan area. Word got around about Fernando and his artwork was in demand. Having done tattoo work for a few years, in 2011 Fernando made a career out of tattooing and began to ink at Embassy Tattoo in Washington D.C..
