Today’s awesome featured artist is El Gato Gomez. She works in many mediums (textiles, sculpture, and of course painting to name a few!) and is inspired by many different styles and artists. Of course one look at the works below and you can see a passion for vintage cartoons and advertising! I’ve always loved vintage representations of the future, which is why I am really attracted to her futuristic series of paintings. Gomez paints mainly on board using gouache (if you’ve never used it before it is very thick and sticky stuff…not easy to use!!) which creates amazing bright vibrant colours. It also references the 50’s-60 painted ads as most of them were made using the same type of flat paint. Please visit her website! She is very prolific and there is lots of work to see!!! Enjoy the show!
Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a restful weekend!
