Daniel González | The Artist


Daniel González was born in Argentina in 1963; he lives and works in Berlin and New York.
His work results from the research into celebration rites and cross-boundaries and it takes the form of public projects, sequined banner-painting and wearable one-off pieces exhibited in high-impact performances. González creates irrational and energetic worlds, areas of freedom in which existing conventions collapse.

Worldwide renowned visual artist, Daniel González has always developed a unique approach to fashion, where he states an indelible design forged by his sensitive perspective toward woman appearance.

Established in 2004 in Berlin, Daniel González D.G.Clothes Project is an art-applied-to-fashion project, which investigates the limits between the Self and the Exterior Appearance of individuals.
Through this label, the Argentine artist Daniel González creates Wearable Sculptures by mixing clothes, shoes, objects, textiles, accessories and a variety of styles, which speak of the person who wears them in an extremely intimate way. With this fashion project, Daniel González ideally closes the circle with his origins as fashion stylist, started in the 80s with the brand Pisquit Sunwear and which took him to leave Argentina toward Italy in the 90s.

With a true passion for the details of design, Daniel González runs the D.G.Clothes Project with one-of-a-kind sensibility, overseeing every design, material, detail and exhibition layout.

The artist exhibited also at Zabludowicz Collection in London, at Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, in Viafarini gallery (Milan), at Neuer Kunstverein in Aachen, at the Second Prague Biennale and at Manifesta 7 Trient/Bozen. His works are included in several private collections, among them the Zabludowicz Collection, London, Fondation pour l’art contemporain Claudine et Jean-Marc Salomon (France), Luciano Benetton (Venice, Italy), Patrizia Pepe (Prato, Italy).
The artist is represented by Diana Lowenstein Gallery (Miami) and Studio La Cittá Gallery (Verona).
