About Enriquillo Amiama

Enriquillo Amiama belongs to a new generation of Dominican artists who have appropriated the formal and conceptual characteristics of the historical vanguards. As a pioneer in the plastic flow, since 1983, consistently, fuses elements characteristic of symbolism, abstraction, hyper-realism, as well as
emblematic iconography artists.
From the reuse of anachronistic aesthetics of appropriation and paraphrasing, has created a proper style that could be defined as a new pop art,
whose theme and concept as expressed in paintings, installations, videos, digital art and more today using the middle "Facebook" as a plastic substance.
