Carlos Kookie Gonzalez El Brochaso Art & Murals

Thanks for visiting my unofficial web page......I've been drawing and painting since childhood. Most of my art reflects the phases of life I've experienced growing up in San Francisco's Barrio, The Mission District. I feel blessed to have experienced the movements and activism in politics, art and music from the 60's through today.

I'm a kid from the streets and mostly self taught. As a result of delinquency I was relegated to community service to assist muralists on community murals and took like a fish to water. Somehow, I made it to college. While at SF State, I continued to receive on the job training by apprenticing with renown veteran Muralists such as, Chuy Campusano, Ray Patlan and Mike Rios.

After acquiring my Ethnic Studies degree, I eventually found myself working as a Probation Officer in the place I dreaded as a teenager. During that time, I was able to give back to my community by working mural projects with troubled youth in my community. During my career as a Peace Officer, I continued moonlighting on private commissions, community and commercial murals.

I ended a 25 year law enforcement career in May of 2015. Now, I'm happily retired and living the dream as an artist.

Happily retired in my studio

I'm available for commercial, community and private commissions at (415)571-7114
