“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 Postmodernism today, since 1982, in a coherent way, he fuses distinctive 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 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.”
