Artist Ahmed Gomez


“My works have an ongoing relationship between my personal history, the formation of

my early years in an environment surrounded by art influenced by Social Realism and the

iconic illustrations of the 1920!s-50!s. They are a juxtaposition of pictorial layers, coexisting

with several realities, a dialogue between the ideas of the vanguards and the Pulps Comics

& Pin-Ups. They connect in an intertwining game. I want these ideas to trigger new

reference points, and stimulate critical commentary on the painting as either an element of

value or a visual interpretation of cultural representation.”
