Louis Gonzalez

Above: Olives, and Pepper, lacquered, painted, and carved wood

Louis Gonzalez was born in raised in Colombia, but currently lives and works in Florida. Louis’ process has been developed over years of experience. Every detail is considered throughout his process; from his selection of the wood, the drying of the wood (which can take years), and the carving, painting, and finishing of the sculptures. His Olives and Pepper sculptures are fun and vibrant additions to our Viva bar!

Fun Fact: Most of the wood used in Louis’ art comes from South Florida. Some of his favorite wood types are Oak, Mahogany, Wild Tamarind, and Black Mangrove.
