WHAT IS THAT YOU EXPRESS IN YOUR EYES: THE INSPIRED WORKS OF ALBERTO GÓMEZ

Crealdé has commissioned the artist to create a large three-panel mural on the history of immigration in the United States, which will debut during this exhibition.

Internationally-exhibited Alberto Gómez has participated in more than 25 solo and group exhibitions and has works in many private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad. In 2002, he received the Simon Bolivar Prize as Central Florida’s Best Latin American Artist. Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Gómez is a figurative artist, painter and master print maker who became a U.S. citizen in 2011 and has created 31 large scale murals throughout the United States.

His style of painting is realistic with regards to the objects and people, often mixing the past, present and future in one painting depicting people, figures and daily life while addressing the spiritual, social, philosophical, historical and political events. As the result of a Crealdé commission and a collaborative community project, Alberto Gómez created a social justice themed mural for the Hope CommUnity Center in Apopka in 2006. Crealdé has commissioned the artist to create a large three-panel mural on the history of immigration in the United States, which will debut during this exhibition and will be shown at the two-day Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs’ FusionFest (November 28 and 29, 2020).
