ABOUT THE ARTIST:
In the Book of Genesis, in the Old Testament of the Bible, Gomorrah is one of the two cities (the other one being Sodom) destroyed by God, because of the bad behaviour of their inhabitants. Therefore, the fact the ‘enfant terrible’ of French street art, Gomor, chose this pseudonym to express his talent is no coincidence.
Born in Paris in 1992, he started to spray paint buildings facades in his neighbourhood at a very young age. His technique quickly developed and evolved towards new media offering new possibilities to his evolving art.
The young graffiti artist dove into the world of comics that he loved so much, just as Pop Art masters Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein did before him. He started to use recurring characters from pop-culture in his paintings from 2015: Wonder Woman, Superman, or Uncle Scrooge, who is a little too fond of his money...
He combined them with popular streetwear brands such as Supreme, or Louis Vuitton to insert them into a more concrete and often ostentatious present world. In his own way, and in a personal search for rightness, Gomor seems to have found the magic recipe for the perfect balance between the spontaneous contemporary codes of street art and the sophisticated drawings of the 20th century’s pop art . This French artist thus conveys clear messages denouncing the excesses of our capitalist society, but with a light touch in misleadingly childlike artworks.
Gomor’s art is always expressed through many media. Although most of the works sold in galleries are acrylics on canvas, the painter sometimes returns to his first loves and delights us with his characters on everyday life items: skateboards changed for the occasion in triptychs, mail boxes...
