Meet, Junior Gomez
with Junior Designs
Originally from New York City, I followed my passion obtaining my Bachelor in Visual Arts from Wells College. The difficulties of breaking into the art world as a new graduate led me to build a career in the corporate sector. While life pulled me towards new professions, I always found myself creating new projects and developing new techniques in any spare time I had. Seeking a fresh start, I relocated to Charlotte and committed to chasing after my childhood dream. I took the time to develop my skills and sought out artistic training. I began displaying my work and receiving commissions, the spark I needed to know my dream was ready to become a reality. In 2021, I committed to my lifelong passion and became a full-time professional artist. Overcoming the obstacles and the struggles, I continued to experiment and persevere, ultimately finding new levels of artistic growth. To date, I have exhibited across North Carolina in galleries such as The Harvey B. Gantt Center, John Foster Gallery and Gallery 811. As my artistic career continues to grow, I have plans to exhibit worldwide and engage my skills for murals and public art projects. My practice reflects my own journey. I translate my gratitude for life and my ability to embrace the present moment into the art I create. As life is so often deafened by chaos, I seek for my art to be an outlet for hope. With each barrier I break down, I want to inspire others to do the same in their own lives. Creating a connection to the beauty of the world we inhabit, my art will activate the curiosity in my viewers as they explore the deepest realms of their own imaginations.
