Carles Gomila was born in Ciutadella de Menorca in 1978.
His tender but sometimes disturbing paintings are influenced by both Mediterranean art and European Surrealism. Many of his works depict classical subjects, such as the with a contemporary twist.
The subjects of his paintings range from small (weather dials, cocks) to monumental (Medusa, Virgin Mary). While clearly rooted in the figurative tradition, his figures seem to owe as much to his imagination as anatomical studies.
His work has been exhibited in Spain, Italy and England.
