The story told in Dreams of Sand also reflects the artist's life.

Born in La Rioja, which is probably Spain's finest wine region, Gonzalez has loved painting since he was a child.

"My father loved painting, though he was not an artist. I remember that when I was 3, I was sitting on my father's knee and we were drawing.

"He took my hand and I thought it was me who was drawing.

"My father reminds me of that day. He told me that my eyes expressed my passion for drawing," he says.

Gonzalez, who has a degree from the Circus Academy Rogelio Rivel in acrobatic balance, used to be a circus artist from 2003. And it was only in 2010 that he became a solo artist.
