Carlos G. Gomez


Painter Carlos G. Gomez teaches at the University of Texas at Brownsville, Texas. Many of his students cross the border from Matamoros, Mexico, every day. Only the Rio Grande (and a very high security fence) separates the two cities.

Q: What is the essence of your life as a border artist?

A: “Disputing the false illusion of the border and the art that it has produced. Not everything is violence, drugs and the wall!”
