This new collection, created by artists Guillermo Gomez Lama and Tania Marmolejo, boasts eight different designs, each presented with three color options. Further, these 10”x10” cement tiles feature new, contemporary designs that are ideal for commercial and residential spaces.
As a visual artist, graphic designer, paper lover and one who is obsessed with patterns and the production process, Guillermo began his art studies at UMASS Amherst in Boston, MA. He continued his formal studies in Communication Design at Parsons The New School of Design in New York, which is where his interest in mechanical production processes through screen printing and engraving techniques, were born.
Guillermo’s research led him to train with Master Printer Marie Dormuth, with whom artists Andy Warhol, Peter Gee and Martin Mazorra received training in the art of lithography. His works have certain influences that are based on vibrations and repetitions. He currently lives and works in Santo Domingo.
On the other hand, Tania’s designs contain a mixture of her Scandinavian heritage. Her use of decorative, interwoven lines illustrate the natural environments resembling Nordic folk art, ancient Vikings styles, as well as Caribbean essences, such as: color, warmth, the Coralillo flower, tropical gardens, and the sea.
Tania is represented by Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery, and her work has been exhibited at Art Miami Context and Pinta NY, and in national and international exhibitions. She is author of the books “I Doodle Therefore I Am” and “To Doodle or Not to Doodle.” Currently, Tania lives in New York, where she works as a textile designer for Nanette Lepore, Nicole Miller and XOXO, among others.
Part of the sales generated by Guillermo and Tania collection will be donated to a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of art, culture and education. The artists have named time Fé y Alegría, a popular international movement of integral education and social promotion aimed at the excluded population as the beneficiary of the donation.
