When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Paco Pomet

Most of Paco Pomet's work is monochromatic and not a little reminiscent of Mark Tansey. Tansey's work tended toward witty art criticism and philosophical punditry. Paco Pomet's approach may be less serious but he is obviously having a tremendous amount of fun and we're all invited to join him. The humor ranges from the grim and black to light slapstick, from wry surrealism to screwball parody. Most of the images on his blog/website (pacopomet.wordpress.com) need to be viewed a little larger to appreciate. Often the element of humor is subtle, perhaps one small figure among others with something odd about it. Of course others are not so subtle. But I'm sure you'll find something here to entertain you.
