The art of Paco Pomet is highly iconoclastic. He possesses a wonderfully bizarre sense of humor that manifests itself in his oil paintings which contain a strange or humorous visual twist. His subverted landscapes and portraits often borrow from sepia-toned photographs that look like historical documents or vintage photos. There is a parallel to traditional Western Art, mixed with a monochrome effect that restates the documentary character of the original piece.

Spanish artist references the appearance of vintage vacation photos and vast historical landscapes in his surreal oil paintings, works that offer a subtle humor from their often grayscale palette. By rendering limbs as freakishly elongated tubes and adding touches of neon green and orange, Pomet brings his images of the past into the future, hinting at a post-apocalyptic realm where humans are forced to live beside the radioactive waste that has lead to their bodies’ defects.

Pomet lives and works in Grenada, Spain, and is represented by galleries in Spain, the US, and Denmark. He shares snapshots of work and life on Instagram.
