Unflappable is a rare body of work – completed in the months of the COVID-19 global crisis. To describe the artist duo is to allow for disruption and continuity to exist together, to perceive the static vagabond. Diego Omil & Dea Gómez are partners in everything. This duo has years of collaboration, years of a studio practice that result in a magical third element – an exceptional body of work demonstrating remarkable skills of craft and intelligence.
Dea Gómez (b. 1989, Salamanca, SP) and Diego Omil (b. 1988, Pontevedra, SP) have been working together since 2012 under the name “Los Bravú“. They have been awarded the Solo Residency at Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop and have been working in the studio above the gallery space from May-August 2020. Their work has won numerous awards, with the scholarship of the Royal Academy of Spain in Rome (2016-17) being the most important. Recent exhibitions include Brillas muchísimo, DA2 Museo de Arte Moderno de Salamanca (2019), Fé y afición, Galería Trinta, Santiago de Compostela (2019), La caza del faisán, Galería Jorge Alcolea, Barcelona, SP (2019), E ́to Tiguere Tan Bien Chivo, Lyle O.
