Art plus steel equals DMA’s newest Placemaker: trash cans By Dave Gonzo
The artful trash cans that will be installed on Division Street east of Southeast 112nd Avenue are designed by Dave Gonzo Sculpture, which won the Division Midway Alliance commission. The trash-can enclosure design will feature Mount Hood, the DMA logo and two roses, all made of mild steel.
The creators, Dave Gonzo and Matt Scheick bring a combined 32 years of metalwork experience, passion and skill to the DMA placemaking project. Gonzo, an “alchemist artist,” began honing his craft in his hometown of Albuquerque, N.M., and gathered experience (and miles) in San Diego and British Columbia. Read More.
Dave "Gonzo" Gonzalez as Dave Gonzo Sculpture By Ann Ereline
An alchemist artist, David Gonzo began his craft in the steel and welding trade 18 years ago in his hometown of Albuquerque, N.M. His start in the world of steel began as a job working on overseas storage containers. (Is it a wonder that he’s part of the DMA trash-can project?)
He moved to San Diego, where he dove into steel art on the weekends in the structural steel shop he worked at. In California, he set up his first art business, Iron Insanity, and continued growing his knowledge and passion for his art, which became his sanctuary. Read More
