"Red Sunglasses" is a surrealistic-style painting by Cuban artist Carlos Gamez de Francisco. This piece is from a recent series the artist created using watercolor, graphite, and ink on paper.
As in his other portrait series, the artist continues to challenge and reimagine traditional forms of portraiture. He depicts his subject in a 17th-century dress as a symbol of wealth and success and adds modern elements as a way of rewriting history. In this particular piece, Francisco adds a pair of sunglasses to his otherwise traditional depiction to represent glamor, the power of modern technology, and control over one's body, emotions, and interactions with others.
