My life | Alouishous San Gomma / Aholsniffsglue
TED x CoralGables
Aholsniffsglue is one of Miami’s top creatives for many reasons. I’ve only heard about his Telk Talk segment and finally found it! It’s from 2015.
Check the talk below and let us know what you think.
In this talk, artist Alouishous San Gomma gives a stark account of the experiences that led him to his prolific art career. He discusses how he turned adversity into art throughout his life.
Alouishous, whose raw yet instantly recognizable street murals evaporate the divide between high and low art, often jumbles disparate themes from mass media, popular culture and marginalized pockets of society.
He often draws inspiration from the urban environment and systems of society which dehumanize its inhabitants. Alouishous’ deceptively simple, yet complex renderings both portray the veneer of our everyday surroundings and the dull, job-related conflicts often encountered in a dysfunctional workplace.
The South Florida native is best known for his soaring urban murals depicting expansive fields of drowsy eyes, reflecting his unique vision of life, labor and unrequited love of the mean streets of Miami.
