'Chicano/gay' hardly begins to impart the melange of traits, styles, and penchants relating to the artist known as Gronk. His art spans painting, drawing, graphics, murals, photographs, set design, ceramics, computer-based animation, and performance art live on streets and stages and also video. Born in an East Los Angeles barrio, he has seemingly absorbed all the multicultural and popular culture activities of the city which is so much like a matrix and a reflection of American life and the gaudy behavior of Hollywood. Yet Gronk has a recognizable style. In most cases, it's like an especially vibrant, complex graffiti art, often with images or intimations of menace though these are usually outweighed by an artistic ambition and vision kept from crystallizing by irresolvable conflicts. In fewer works, Gronk does depict a unitary, sometimes single emotion or state and sometimes an ironic or other statement. Though usually reflecting the harsh or conflicted feelings which are the subject matter of Gronk's art, these nevertheless have the simplicity of a snapshot with only a few objects. These simpler art works correspond to feelings or situations Gronk has personified in his performance art or complemented in his set designs. Gronk's diverse art is put in the context not of biography, but of culture and his relationships with others. Benavidez is an independent scholar who has taught at UCLA and participates in the area culture in different ways.
