Francisco Gomez


Francisco Gomez was born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1974. From the age of seven to twelve, he studied classical representation through still life’s, under Spanish painter Juan Manuel Lorenzo. After moving to Canada with his family in 1991, Gomez continued to study art at the post secondary level. He received a degree in Fine Art from the Ontario College of Art and Design, majoring in painting and drawing with a minor in Art History. Gomez has had many national and international exhibitions. He has also donationed to a number charities including Miles for A Million Tours, the Breast Cancer Society and Reach for the Rainbow. Driven by his desire to anthropomorphize forms through abstraction, Gomez focuses his attention to the sensualization of gesture. His inspiration is derived from sources such as Anatomy, Botany and Psychoanalysis. Gomez strives to seduce the viewer, by wooing the eye to experience unique and creative situations in which the intellect is also stroked.
