José Luis González: Killing Time
July 6 – August 3, 2019
David Tuck Memorial Library
Killing Time is an exhibition of autobiographical ink drawings by the Argentinian-Canadian artist José Luis González. Done in a minimalist style, this work was inspired by the trials and tribulations experienced by the artist while waiting to acquire Canadian citizen status in the city of St. John’s in Newfoundland and Labrador. These images are featured in his upcoming book entitled “Still Life”.
José Luis González was born in the metropolitan area of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the year 1980. He worked for several years for some of the most important animation studios of Argentina, meanwhile publishing his work at www.elmundodejl.com He moved to Canada in 2008. After two years in Vancouver, a hitch hiking trip across the country took him to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, place were he resides since then, working as visual artist, illustrator and writing graphic novels and zines inspired by his experiences.
The artist has two graphic novels (“Año Sabático” and “Antes de Volver”) published to this date by the Argentinian label “Musaraña”. He also has been publishing art books and zines with Pink Eye in St. John’s, NL and with his own label Bebop Yonqui and also with the master printer Guido Avramides in Buenos Aires. Besides the graphic work, the artist has been slowly but steadily showing his work in galleries and alternative art venues around the world, like Hollywood in Cambodia in Buenos Aires, Crack festival in Rome and the Millerntor Gallery in Hamburg.
The artist acknowledges the financial support by the Arts Council of Newfoundland and the city of St. John’s for the realization for this work.
