Divided between Portugal, his country of birth, and Catalonia, his homeland, Rui Gomes has been developing his artistic activity since 2001. This bipolarity is present in his work, which is organized in series. Always positive, this artist uses his art to talk about his experiences but also his doubts and questions. He twists the images with humor in order to make the viewer laugh or at least smile. Rui Gomes integrates stories into the pictorial field of his works, without ever taking a predominant place. While reappropriating the narrative power of "New Figuration", the artist makes a point of honor to highlight the power of painting.
