Pedro González Pulido is a prominent Cuban artist and educator. In 1997 he was Artist–in-Residence at Art City Studios. He returned to Ventura in 2015 as a Featured Artist @ the 2015 Art Walk. A longtime friend of Ventura filmmaker Lorenzo DeStefano, Pedro became aware of Lorenzo’s work on “Hearing is Believing”, the feature documentary film about Rachel Flowers. After seeing a Spanish-subtitled version (“Oir es Creer”), Pedro was inspired, as have been many people, by Rachel’s story and her music.
He began to conceive of a series of acrylic portraits inspired by scenes from the film.
Hearing is Believing Productions and the Museum of Ventura County are proud to bring the film and Pedro’s amazing work back to Ventura.
