Art in Brief: Ramiro Gomez

This is less a post than it is to pass along an article about an amazing new artist over at PolicyMic. 

Ramiro Gomez displays an almost Cindy Sherman-esque gift for messing with perception. Although his work is arguably more politicized, and he uses paint instead of straight photography, it's still a magnificent commentary on the differences between classes (and races, and employment substrata) in America today.I'd encourage all of you readers to check out the excellent article (linked below), as well as look into his work further.
