Felix "Lex" Gonzalez, Jr., son of the late well-known artist, Felix P. Gonzalez, was born in Manila on October 31, 1938.

Exposed to art early in his childhood, Felix, known as Lex, did pencil drawings even before he reached school age. He was in his senior year in the College of Architecture when he decided to devote full time to painting.

His first attempt in joining an art competition won him third honorable mention for his painting entitled The Exile in a national art contest sponsored by the United Drug Company. That same year, he won the first honorable mention for his entry The Crucifixion in the National Press Club art contest. The turning point in his art career came in 1958, when he won the coveted first prize from among a select group of contemporary and conservative artists, in an art competition exposition. His winning entry, done in oil, was entitled The Golden Harvest.

In 1968, he went on an educational observation tour of the United States and had positive reception, especially from galleries in Hawaii and California.

For Lex, painting is a form of communication on the deepest and most lasting level, saying it must inspire as well as soothe the soul.

Working in his studio/art gallery in San Juan, Metro-Manila, he does paintings whose subjects include landscapes, seascapes, still life and portraits.
