Best Of Tucson®

Best Visual Artist

Jessica Gonzales

In a town filled with murals and vibrant art, it’s no small feat to be voted the Old Pueblo’s best visual artist. But Jessica Gonzalez’s energetic combination of botanical designs, soulful faces and arresting colors makes her work rise to the top. Her murals adorn several establishments across town, including Hotel McCoy, the Loft Cinema and Antigone Books. Check out her jaw-dropping “Goddess of Agave” mural on the west side of the Tucson Warehouse and Transfer building. Not only is Gonzalez’s art imaginative and technically impressive; the style matches Tucson’s mood to a big, beautiful T.
