Daniel González (Venezuela, born in 1934) Muerte en el asfalto, 1978 (from a polyptych) Cibachrome print from 2012, N° 6/6. 13.8 x 20.7 cm
Born in 1934 in San Juan de los Morros, Venezuela.
The artist, photographer, and designer Daniel González is known mainly for his participation in the manic, convention-flouting 1960s collective known as El Techo de la Ballena. The balleneros considered themselves cultural guerrillas, circulating manifestos and organizing exhibitions and sit-ins. González participated as a photographer and graphic designer in all of the group’s publications. His images of that period cast a sardonic and dystopian gaze on a city that was seeking to present a progressive and modernistic facade. González lives and works in Caracas.
