Some of the greatest artists in the world were sculptors. Personally I believe it requires quite some talent and vision to be able to transform a piece of wood, stone, clay or metal into a representation of a human body. To be able to look at a block of marble but see a beautiful human shape, and actually manage to cut it free… it must be a marvelous satisfaction. But do you really need those materials to work with? Not according to Dennis Gonzalez.
When Dennis Javier Gonzalez was young, he didn’t exactly look the way he does today. Dennis is an artist and got his vision at the age of 18, when he decided he wanted to join the military. Dennis applied but was rejected because he was overweight. Really overweight. His military recruiter gave him a diet plan and told him to start exercising, an advise Dennis took to his heart. 9 Months later, Dennis Gonzalez lost almost 90lbs and go his vision.
Like a sculptor, Dennis began to see a beautiful shape hidden in the raw material. He realized all he had to do was patiently work on it. And so he carved and chiselled, he modeled and constructed. As any artist, the process of creation didn’t go without making mistakes. But now, at the age of 30, after a few ups and downs, Dennis has created his vision of perfection. A well sculpted, strong muscled physique.
Bodybuilding and dieting have brought Dennis to the point where he is today. They have become his passion on the way to perfection, and will always be his means to maintain and improve. The military is no longer an option for Dennis, but his search to perfection and a healthier lifestyle has opened other doors for this beautiful man from a small Texan coastal town on the Gulf of Mexico . Dennis has entered the world of modeling. He has started to make name for himself in the area of fitness modeling, and already photographers are lining up to work with this new face – and body – on the scene. Jeff Brewster was one of the lucky ones to have had the opportunity to have this example of pure masculinity and raw beauty in front of his camera. Dennis Gonzalez has found the place he always wanted to be. Through knowledge, hard work and will power. -B-
