Dionisio González

Dionisio González is an artist educated at different universities in Spain. In his most recent works, the artist takes a critical stance on the architecture and social culture of the favelas in the Brazilian megalópolis of São Paulo. He inserts new building structures into his photographs of the favelas via computer.
But Dionisio González is not only interested in the aesthetic aspect; his works also have a social facet. The artist is involved in a continuous discourse with the mayors' offices in the various favelas surrounding São Paulo, to find ways to transform some of the building structures he has designed into reality.
