Meet the Artist: Ruben Gonzales

Just a small farm town kid from Tolleson, AZ now living in DTPHX. Wanted to be a part of the Phoenix scene story line and started a small retail/gallery/production shop called 11th Monk3y Industries back in 09 on the RoRo and now reside on 11th And Grand. We do work and build all day, from welding up this beautiful sun to printing for the Grand Ave art Festival. Last year, we crafted the CityScape Public Heart, which still lives on the property today.

This sun sculpture was crafted by Michelle Myers, Adam, and Myself. From design welding it up we worked to bring this to life. Also had the help of Aaron Voigt with forming the circular square tubing you see to help frame out the entire Sun itself. Thanks to all of them for the creative hands and skill sets to bring to life for all to see and enjoy. Do good, be good, work hard, STAY HUMBLED.

(At 11th Monk3y we do that too.)
