New Vintage Surreal Paintings by Paco Pomet

All images © Paco Pomet

Artist Paco Pomet proceeds to channel old classic photographs and historical signs in his delightfully surreal oil paintings. While all of his paintings capture his unmistakable wit, many of the works appear to straddle a fine line between comedy and horror. Employing a monochrome base, Pomet selectively adds color to emphasize the focal point of the story and to heighten the vintage, hand-colored photo aesthetic, while playing elements of scale, and modern technology icons.

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