Gomez Bueno: Blockbusters/Grandes Exitos
Blockbusters/Grandes Exitos is a collection of politically satirical work that analyze people of power and modern day culture. Gomez Bueno interacts with mainstream Western popular culture through his imagery and bright colors. His three dimensional objects allude to historical figures and literature while remaining whimsical. His large paintings link traditional painting and underground comics, satirizing political propaganda and current political figures. Despite their outward playfulness, Bueno’s work acts as a cultural critique using reference from the worlds of advertising, music, and cinema.
