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.

News: Actual Show

Two of my art installations were selected for the XXIX National Biennial Art Contest.

I show a mix of photography, painting, graphic design, video, collected objects, and sounds.

It's so exciting to engage with art lovers for seven months at our main museum, the Dominican Modern Art Museum!
