In his studio practice and research, Spanglish — a hybrid dialect that Adrian Gonzalez speaks — it is a starting point for borrowed fragments of language. Spanglish presents a distinct style of expression with original vocabularies. He associates the combative, improvisatory creation of words with artistic methods in his interdisciplinary studio practice to make collage and assemblage objects from a variety of drawn, printed, painted, sculpted, digitally modeled, and found elements. He has exhibited his creative research at Art St. Louis, Greenpoint Gallery, Mildred Lane Kemper Museum of Art, Orlando Museum of Art, and Bruno David Gallery.

He received his MFA from Washington University in St. Louis, BFA from the University of Central Florida, and was a participant at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He collaborated as a Master Printer at Flying Horse Editions for almost a decade, where it was his growing responsibility to provide complex technical expertise and individual creative support to widely exhibited artists. 

He has led presentations and taught workshops on his research as a Collaborative Master Printer on many contemporary and traditional prints and techniques at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, in New York City, Crown Point Press, in San Francisco, the University of Central Florida, and the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona.
