BIO

Valentina Rosa Gonzalez

Also known as VRGNZ, her initials.

Is a Chilean American, multi-disciplinary artist and designer, whose creative journey bridges mural painting, graphic design, video editing, and music production.

With a passion for supporting small businesses, non-profits, and fellow artists, VRGNZ has showcased their work at numerous conventions
and events in major cities across the US.

Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of influences, her aesthetic embodies a post-graffiti, contemporary style, often infused with satire and edginess. 

From vibrant aerosol murals that grace urban landscapes to thought-provoking graphic designs, VRGNZ seamlessly blends elegance with an unmistakable edge. Their work invites viewers to explore the complexities of the human experience while pushing the boundaries of artistic expression.

In addition to their visual art, VRGNZ is a versatile creator, delving into the realms of event production and immersive installation. Their dynamic portfolio reflects a commitment to innovation and a fearless exploration of new mediums.

"The word 'virgin' is often loaded with societal expectations and judgments. For me, it symbolizes purity of intention, a commitment to authenticity, and the power of reclaiming narratives.

By proudly owning the word VRGNZ within my name, I challenge stereotypes and advocate for a world where individuals are not confined by labels or preconceptions. 

I've always been interested in design and fashion, creating items that speak to my community and empower us through "comedic reverence"™️.

It's a form of expression, a means of communication, and sometimes even a tool for social change. In essence, it's about acknowledging and celebrating the profound impact that comedy can have on individuals and society as a whole."

Residing in Eugene, OR, current work primarily plays with concepts of social constructs.
