Fine art painter Victor Crisostomo Gomez is a contemporary artist from Lima, Peru,
and features the people and cultures of his native country in his vibrant and captivating portraits. These compelling images blend tradition with a contemporary edge. The dichotomy of past and present would normally be difficult and prohibitively complex, however, Victor, a Native American of Inca Qechua heritage, effortlessly bridges the two extremes while traveling the jungles of South America for his research and inspiration.
Completely self-taught, Victor’s approach to art is to portray emotion through intense color and to render the men, women and children in his portraits with a soft, almost dream-like quality. The result is that each painting becomes a beautiful exploration into symbolism, cultural heritage and identity, drawing on a sense of harmony that he tries to instill in each canvas.
