Max Gomes

My practice focuses on chosen images from contemporary media: social networks, memes, advertising, comic books and tv shows that somehow can change our visual perception, thus creating a new iconography.

I was shortlisted for Washington DC’s (e)merge Art, US,  Marmite 2016 Painting Prize, London UK and honorable mention in Paraty Art Prize, Rio de Janeiro. Group exhibitions in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Washington DC, London and Berlin.
I'm enrolled in an MFA Fine Art at Panthéon-Sorbonne Paris 1 University, France
