Innovative artist Gabriel paints with rich, earthen colors on top of gold and silver leaf which lends to his paintings their characteristic warmth and luminous antique effect.
Gabriel was born into a family of artists in Laguna Beach, California. Both parents and grandparents were successful artists. He earned a degree in Fine Art from the University of Santa Cruz in 1997 and has been painting professionally ever since. After trying various styles, it was the gold leaf technique he learned from his mother that really captured his focus.
As a surfer, his fascination with water and waves shines through in his subject matter and we are allowed to experience vicariously his deep appreciation for the ocean and the tremendous allure of the waves as seen through his eyes.
Gabriel's work hangs in prominent galleries throughout southern California and at Sargent's Fine Art in Hawaii. All paintings are originals as the gold leaf effect does not survive the giclee process.
