Carlos Goico - Pair of Acrylics on Found Paper - Masks
Carlos Goico, the infamous counter-culture Dominican artist who died in 2009, is just now being discovered by the artistic elite of the Dominican and Caribbean art world. After being disparaged both personally and artistically his whole life for living and painting on the streets of the Colonial Zone in Santo Domingo, Goico is finally being recognized as one of the finest artists of his time.
We have an extensive collection of his works on paper, on canvas and even some miscellaneous pieces. We will offer on Dominican Art some of these for sale. If you would like to see more, please check out these links:
These two works by Goico are painted on found paper - the discarded backing to wall paper. They depict carnival masks and unusually visceral and spontaneous even by Goico's standards. The colors are bright and strong, and the style is uniquely Neo-Expressionist.
These works are listed in the Carlos Goico online Catalogue Raisonnee.http://www.carlosgoico.com
We would recommend not purchasing works by Goico if they are not included in the Catalogue.
