Stampede, vinyl, Ruth Gómez
Ruth Gómez Valladolid, 1976. This artist, licensed in Fine Arts at the University of Salamanca, is easily recognizable by its flat colors and urban aesthetics of graffiti and illustration. His baroque compositions often suggest concrete stories despite the fact that many are often autobiographical. The most current general societal themes are frozen in vibrant drawings and neo pop aesthetics. The comics, advertising and video games connect with winks to the classics of history, such as Jules Verne or George Melies.
Zzz, Ruth Gómez
In her work, the animals suggest a very specific aesthetic, which tells the Parisian behavior of the central district, city in which she lived after finishing her studies. The animation and alternation of colors, put this illustrator in the spotlight for all those who enjoy this artistic technique. Motionless animation and capturing the moment are the two attributes that stand out in her work. In this show, the paths of the animal world and the more contemporary urban are united, plays with the metaphor of the mirror. The social importance of its icons relaxes following the inspiration of fantasy and its own creative world.

The animals are the protagonists, so it shows all facets of these, portraying occasionally in their maximum splendor, as is the case of the series "stampede" or drawing the more tender and quiet side as in the "Zzz" project. Its vinyls represented as a 3D vinyl break the bidimensionality approaching the viewer in an organic and unrestricted way.
