"…When viewing my work, allow it to remind you not to take life too seriously, and to continue flourishing in your own brilliant ways".
Lana Gomez’s work has a sense of freedom and heart that reflects the boundless, yet kind rebel that she is as an artist. After studying art at the University of Tennessee, Gomez moved to Los Angeles, where she continued to experiment with acrylics and different mixtures of materials. Her painting style is inspired by Helen Frankenthaler, Jackson Pollack, Morris Louis, and other legendary abstract expressionists, but is set in the 21st century. Ultimately, Gomez’s work caught the eye of famed interior designer, Kelly Wearstler, which led to several fruitful collaborations. Gomez was the resident painter at Wearstler’s design studio from 2008-2009. Wearstler then commissioned Gomez do a mural-sized piece and featured it in her latest book, Hue. Gomez continues to push the boundaries in her work and recently completed a 10-foot guitar sculpture for Gibson GuitarTown on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. Gomez opened her own gallery space in West Hollywood in November 2011 and today, her pieces are featured everywhere from the legendary Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills to outdoor venues, office buildings, and private residences. Her work has also been featured in trend-setting publications such as C, House Beautiful, Lonny, Los Angeles Confidential and The New Yorker.Gen Art and smart are thrilled to introduce Gen Art Detour presented by smart, to make its debut at the SCOPE art fair in Miami, featuring Lana Gomez as one of the chosen emerging artists to custom wrap a smart car with their design.
