|About the Artist
|Alfredo Gomez Jr. was born to puertorican parents in 1977 in Paterson, NJ. He
originally was drawn to cartoons and comic books, which later developed into a
Graffiti styled art. As an undergraduate at New Jersey City University he
discovered his love for oil painting and developed further his abilities in drawing.
He studied Human Anatomy, Figure painting, Composition, Color Theory,
Sculpture, Computer Art and Art History. In 2005, Alfredo received his
Bachelor's Degree in Painting/Drawing.
Currently Alfredo can be found juggling various commissioned portrait/landscape
drawings and commissioned Mural Work/Graffiti while exhibiting his paintings
here in the U.S. and internationally. With artworks in over twenty-five private
collections around the country and abroad.
In his recent work he has returned to working in a more Graffiti influenced style
which allows him more freedom of expression in using his imagination than in his
previous more realistically rendered art.
