Art matters because creativity is essential to life. I live obsessed with beauty, love, happiness, and how to share it.

Paintings, drawings, and digital art let us dialog between our souls and minds with the external world and transform our habitat into a better one.

Art criticism

Enriquillo Amiama belongs to a new generation of Dominican artists who have appropriated formal and conceptual elements characteristic of the historical avant-gardes. As a pioneer in this plastic current, called today Postmodernism, since 1982, in a coherent way, he fuses characteristic elements of symbolism, abstraction, hyper-realism, as well as emblematic iconographies of recognized artists.

From the reuse of anachronistic aesthetics, appropriation, and paraphrasing, Enriquillo Amiama has created his own style that could be defined as new pop art, whose theme and concept is expressed in paintings, installations, videos, digital art, and more today, using the medium “Facebook” as a plastic substance.
