Paco Pomet

The Granada-born artist Paco Pomet, who studied in the Fine Arts Department of the University of Granada, the Academia de España in Rome and the School of Visual Arts in New York, offers a selection of his latest creations – works which, as Fernando Castro Flórez has noted, feature everyday events filtered through an aesthetic that blends the amazing with the grotesque – at the Madrid gallery My Name’s Lolita Art.

His use of irony and the creation of unreal, illogical worlds force observers to shed their indifference, to seek explanations for the stories they see in these intense images that flirt with the juxtaposition of concepts borrowed from Magic Realism and others seemingly inspired by the old photographic archives of Madrid and Central Europe. In fact, photography and painting, immobility and evolutionary thought merge seamlessly and completely in the work of Paco Pomet.
