About Homero Ganem
Colombian artist Homero Ganem, a.k.a. HG, discovered his love of art at a young age. He would frequently visit his aunt’s art studio and dreamed of making what he loved his career, as she did. In school, he would pass the time with scribbles and doodles while letting his imagination run wild.
HG is a 100% self-taught artist. Over time, he developed a signature style that puts his paintbrush to photographic images. By strategically overlaying vibrant, colorful painted imagery over his black and white photos, HG delivers a dramatic touch that mirrors his perception of life. The freehand artwork interplays with its surrounding environment to tell a story that is at once fictional and realistic.
HG uses this mixed media technique to tell his own life stories of his upbringing in South America and of the women who were the backbone of his family, always playing a vital role in his childhood. HG inserts his Homer Simpson-like avatar into each unique piece, sporting a mustache as an ode to his Colombian and Hispanic roots and giving his artwork a first-person perspective...
