There’s something so iconic yet surreal about the works of Granada, Spain based Paco Pomet. With a fierce sense of humor, his oil paintings take on an unexpected twist in the narrative. He often borrows sepia-toned photographs that look like vintage images or historical documents, and then adds his own interesting take on each scene. With an overall monochrome effect, including bursts of unexpected, bright colors, his art is original, quirky and always created with an underlying wit.

Humorous oil paintings by Paco Pomet

Spanish painter, Paco Pomet uses oil on canvas to paint familiar scenes and iconic gestures from historical photographs and landscape paintings. His technique on sepia-toned colors gives us the familiar aesthetic of  vintage photographs and faded posters from the past.  It’s like looking down memory lane, accompanied by Pomet with a little humor, a wink  and a brush. pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport01 pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport02 pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport03 pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport04 pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport05  pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport07 pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport08  pacopomet_upperplayground_skyou_ondemand_citrusreport10
