About

The figurative surrealistic paintings of Carlos Gamez de Francisco are heavily influenced by his Cuban upbringing in a Russian governed academia setting. This presence exposed Francisco to the world of figurative arts while censoring contemporary art. His near-obsession with the past and storytelling translates into his work, which provides an escape from reality while creating an illusory world.

This surrealist 26-inch high by 14-inch wide original artwork is painted with acrylic paint on canvas. The artwork is signed and titled by the artist on the back. It is stretched, wired, and ready to hang and does not require framing. The sides of the painting are finished as a continuation of the front. Free local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included with this one-of-kind work.

Gamez de Francisco received his BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in 2016. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally as well as shown in many private and public collections including the 21c Museum in Louisville, Kentucky, and the Cubaocho Museum in Miami, Florida. Francisco has received numerous awards and commissions including a mural for Google.

Carlos Gamez de Francisco

Carlos Gamez de Francisco

As a post-revolutionary Cuban born artist, Carlos Gamez de Francisco paints a bright distorted reality in which he demystifies classical beauty and presents it as more of a natural process in its natural form. The figures in his portraiture-style artworks are superimposed and manipulated through the artist’s own experiences of historical figures and events.
Francisco’s style is heavily influenced by his Cuban upbringing in a Russian governed academia setting. This presence exposed Francisco to the world of figurative arts while censoring contemporary art. As this was the accepted dogma, the artist began to rethink and question the accuracy of history and its telling. He began to understand that decontextualizing epochs and artistic symbols was the tool he could use to establish a connection between the present and the past. This near-obsession with the past and storytelling translates into his work, which provides an escape from reality while creating an illusory world.
