Gerald Mendez has been airbrushing since 1986. After his graphic design education in Mexico City, he undertook the challenge to master as many techniques as possible to improve the quality of his artwork - including airbrush and digital illustration, along with airbrush automotive techniques. His drive to create what he terms as "unreal concepts" has motivated him to develop his own personal and unique style. Gerald's airbrush studio is located in Chino, California and he is currently working as a digital illustrator for Disney Studios while staying busy with custom automotive painting projects.
