Surreal Steampunk Style Drawings by Samuel GomezJuxtapoz // Thursday, 21 May 2015
New York City-based artist Samuel Gomez creates large-scale graphite and ink drawings in a surreal-steampunk style. Drafting his narratives into worlds made of highly elaborated machine-like entanglements, Gomez's pieces are incredibly detailed and look to comment on the negative effects of corporations and capitalism.
Samuel Gomez’s style embodies a ‘hybrid surreal-steampunk’ aesthetic marked by an extensive usage of universal semiotics and contemporary allegories to science, socioeconomic, sustainability issues, but more importantly_‘The Future of Automation’ and where it might be taking us. Gomez drafts his narratives into worlds made of highly elaborated machine-like entanglements, where all events and outcomes are intricately linked.
