“The artwork ‘The Factory Masterpiece’ by Angela Gomes is not only impressive in its technique and dimensions, but also carries a deep cultural and social meaning.
The use of aluminum, crystals, and glitter enveloped in a high gloss resin is an example of how the artist uses innovative materials to create a visually impactful work of art. The central image of the piece features various gangs from popular TV shows such as Peaky Blinders, The Godfather, and Money Heist, depicted with their cars, motorcycles, money, and weapons, elements that make up the gangs’ environment.
However, instead of glorifying violence and crime, Gomes’ artwork criticizes the society in which we live, which often allows organized crime and corruption to thrive. Through the representation of fictional gangs and their attractive aesthetics, Gomes draws attention to the dark reality that exists in our communities.
The title ‘The Factory Masterpiece’ suggests that the artwork is a reflection on the way social structures are shaped and transformed by human activity. The piece is a call to action for the creation of more just and equal societies.
This is a limited edition artwork, with only 6 copies produced. Each copy is numbered and signed by the artist, making ‘The Factory Masterpiece’ a rare and valuable piece in any art collection. Combining technique, innovation, and a deep cultural and social significance, this artwork is a testament to the power of art in conveying important ideas and messages.”
