b. 1986 in Caracas - Venezuela
Since 2014 lives and works in Hamburg, Germany.



Arnaldo Drés González explores drawing and painting with mixed media, as well as collage, book art, photography, video and performance art. The problems of the diaspora, the strangeness and peculiarities of home and abroad in relation to his own body, his thinking, feeling and action have become an integral part of his artistic process. In this context, his works are based on visual poetry from analog and digital environments that depict the figuration and abstraction of the human body as well as the landscape in order to generate reflections about migration, identity and psychogeographic space.

González completed his studies at the University of the Arts in the Plastic Arts department in Caracas, graduating with distinction in the field of Interdisciplinary Media, 2011. In September 2016 he successfully completed his master's degree (Fine Arts), accompanied by his mentor Prof. Michael Dörner, at the University of Arts in Social Sciences in Ottersberg. Since then, his career as an artist has continued and his work has been exhibited at various international art festivals, galleries and fairs. 2015 won the Honorable Mention award at the 17th altonale in Hamburg. 2019 was selected as a guest artist for the program Städtelabor at the Performing Arts Festival Berlin. 2021 nominated to the Art Prize of the Atelierkate Lesum in Bremen. From 2015 to 2019 he worked as an artist with the Fonis Gallery in Düsseldorf, and since 2016 he and his art have been represented by the “holzhauerhamburg” gallery.

In November 2021, González was invited to exhibit his artistic work in the Emerging Artists Solo Show department of the Affordable Art Fair Hamburg.
