The histories that Paco Pomet's paints are absurd, bizarre, surreal, and humorous. Just when you think you are looking at a simple realistic painting, you notice that the man in the background has a woman's legs and is posed a little too sexy for his early 1900's facial hair. The Grenadian artist just posted a bunch of new works that were painted in 2012, and we got a kick out of each one.

We have written about the work of Paco Pomet on the site before, saying the Granada-born artist made work that looked like slightly off portraits from a 1950's sci-fi, Cold War film set. The artist is set to open a solo show, Horns and Tales, at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica on Saturday, October 29.

There is just something off here, but in a good way. Paco Pomet's slightly off, eerie scenarios look as if, at times, they could be portraits from a 1950's sci-fi film set, with added bizarre elements. The Granada-born artist does in fact base his paintings off of old photographs, but it is his additions that make them interesting. More after the jump . . .
