The Artist Javier Gomez is the Ambassador of the American division of Maison & Objet, and winner of Maison & Objet’s Rising Talent Award for the Americas in 2016. Born in Panama City and based in Manhattan since 2004 he is a highly skilled artist and designer with over 15 years of experience in the field, currently based between New York City and Lisbon, Portugal.
Javier’s work, including for luxury brands BVLGARI and FENDI, seeks to uncover the subtle beauty of coincidence and anomaly found in nature and architecture; translating the observation of organic objects and architectural details of the world’s greatest cities into bold, color-centric abstract art. These pieces are transposed into JG Home, a collection of furniture, art, home accessories, rugs and bed linens.
JG Home Collection inspires others to detach from the challenges and stress of everyday life and to connect to their true self, creating awareness of the balance that should exist between the mind, body and spirit.
Through the creation of JG Home Collection, JG Solutions was born. Javier has built a strong network of artisans, ateliers and factories boasting expertise with a wide array of materials including metal, wood, ceramic, stone, glass and textiles. Uniquely positioned in Lisbon, Javier has worked with the government of Portugal to promote manufacturing in the home sector for over 7 years.
With manufacturing partnerships in Portugal, Turkey and Greece, JG Solutions can supply any markets worldwide.
Javier’s strong connections in manufacturing has earned him the trust and preference of more than 25 European and Asian brands including Fendi Casa, BVLGARI, Cassina, Roche-Bobois, fenabel, Colleccion Alexandra, mambo, collectors group, and architect and interior design firms such as Jamie Drake Interiors, KA design group, Alisa Bloom interiors, Robert Passal and associates and customers like Hilary Swank, Bill Clinton, Pele, Colin Cowie, and Dr. Phil Mr.
Gomez’s prestigious work has been recognized with solo exhibitions around the world in cities such as New York, Paris, Monaco, Tokyo and Hong Kong, and has published two monographic books, “Dimensions” and “Visual Vibrations.”
