Gerardo was born in Mexico City, and it is there that he began painting at the age of 11, and by 13 he was a serious student of several media. He majored in Graphic Arts at the University of Mexico and studied with many gifted teachers who influenced his current style. His first exhibit in Mexico City in 1984 met with great acclaim. His artwork is currently on exhibit in galleries in Los Angeles and San Diego and throughout southern California. In February 2005, he presented his first New York showing at Jadite Galleries in midtown Manhattan. He has been busy since moving to San Diego in 1999 with new works and commissions, and has been exploring craftworks such as papier maché, tolework and masks.
