When not bogged down by the demands that come with being an actor and mayor, Richard Gomez takes to painting, and recently he took to social media to show off to his fans an abstract painting he made.

In the photo he shared on Instagram on Nov. 20, he can be seen standing next to a huge color block painting of dark blue, gray and black.


“When days are slow and quiet I bring out my paints and canvass (sic) and I take the time to mix my colors to create something beautiful,” shared Gomez.

His painting was lapped up by his fervent fans, with his post garnering over 10,000 likes since the time of posting.

In a later post made on the same day, Gomez shared more pictures of him working on his painting.  Meanwhile, in one video, he can be seen making use of the impasto technique with a palette knife in place of a brush.

Gomez is a self-taught artist. Back in March, he showcased one of his works at Art Fair Philippines. His painting, entitled “OOOOHH,” depicted the phallus in yellow acrylic paint.

Meanwhile, back in 2017, Gomez mounted his first one-man show at the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo city, where he unveiled 31 acrylic paintings inspired by natural disasters such as Supertyphoon Yolanda and typhoons Urduja and Vinta. Gomez has since described the large-scale acrylic paintings as “experiential art.”  /ra
