Gronk is the artistic name of Chicano painter, printmaker, and performance artist Glugio Nicandro. He is best known for his murals, including those at Estrada Courts in East Los Angeles. Gronk’s murals, paintings on canvas, and widely-collected screen prints, is influenced by the works of German Expressionist Max Beckmann and the cartoon-like paintings of American Phillip Guston, along with arts of early civilizations (i.e., Toltec figurines). His work is original and constantly evolving.
