Creating this Golden Gate wall art prints has a lot of history and sure brings back a lot of memories to me.
In 1984, I was at the verge of a decision in my life. With already my first son born for not much more than a year, I would either get my hands into family business, or give sequence to my studies in art.
At the time, Brazilian Globo TV was exploding in quality and technological development, even being called one of the best, if not the best, TV companies in the world.
The broadcast network had this swiss graphic designer, Hans Donner, that was a huge enthusiast of the formerly recent and still crawling computer graphics techniques.
I wanted to learn that!!!
So, after some research, I managed to find out about a good school to start learning to create all that magical art with a computer.
We packed our things and off we flew to San Francisco after my application was approved and the student visa was issued.
The Academy of Art University (College at the time) has been the most exciting place I ever studied in my life.
Living in San Francisco was like breathing culture and art all the time.
Life in America was a new world inside the New World for me. I learned stuff that I still carry to my art today. It has been an invaluable life experience.
The link between the Pacific to the bay of San Francisco is called a “Gate of Gold”, the most well-known channel in the World.
It is outlined by the rim lands of that city’s peninsula and the Marin Peninsula.
Since 1937, the Golden Gate Bridge connects both foreshores.
This is my homage to that wonderful city. Why don’t you make it yours too?
