"In this lifetime, I was able to do music, which I love, and art, which I love. On a personal level, I'm really humbled waking up in the morning knowing I can do what I want for a living. For me, that's really the accomplishment."

Artistic expression runs deep in Rodel Gonzalez’s blood. He’s a third-generation painter, a musician and a singer having achieved great success in all his creative endeavors.

Rodel began painting as a child and considered his paintings a hobby. After co-founding the highly popular Filipino band Side A, touring the world and living his dreams as a musician, Rodel retired from professional music to return to his first love - painting.

Today, Rodel is known for his interplay of light and shadows, details in expressions and structures and depicts mood to which every viewer can relate.

He’s a world-renowned Disney artist, Star Wars artist and is a master of seas and ships.





“Sometimes, I don't miss the music because painting provides the same rush I get when I'm in the recording studio laying down tracks.”
