Dubbed “The King of Transit,” Geraldo Gonzalez was born in Philadelphia, but he’s been living in – and traveling all over – Delaware since 1996. Even as a youngster, Gonzalez was always a bus and train enthusiast, and he’s taken that interest to an artistic level, sometimes against powerful odds and seeming indifference.
Inspired by his favorite subjects since Christiana High School days, Gonzalez creates drawings that pulse with energy, spilling over with the excitement he feels about creating. Working mostly with colored pencils and in watercolor, he creates Technicolor worlds brimming with buses, trains, trolleys and subway lines. He also photographs transit subjects for music videos and movie projects.
