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 48-inch high by 12-inch wide original artwork is painted with watercolor paint on raw canvas. The artwork is signed 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.

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.
