Gonzalo Borondo was born in a Spanish city Valladolid, but very soon went to live in Segovia. At fourteen, Borondo moved to Madrid where he attended the Art School and the Academy of Fine Arts. He graduated in IES Margarita Salas Madrid and continued his fine arts studies in Madrid Complutense University. In 2012, he spent some time in Rome, Italy for an Erasmus cultural exchange program at Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma.
Madrid is the place where he actually began doing graffiti tags all around the city, as well as the classic bombing on trains, his works of puppets – which decrease the letters and increase the drawings – but it soon became clear that this is not expression mature enough for his artistic language. Thanks to his teacher Jose Herranz Garcia, Borondo had the opportunity to learn and experiment with new techniques.
He worked with charcoal, oil and tempera, experimented with new ways of expression just to be closer to the understanding that for the best gallery for him – is the street.
