About the Book
Tokyo was found abandoned in an industrial warehouse battling a serous illness that nearly killed him. He was subsequently adopted by PLAN B. Artist Studios and appointed artist in residence.
At an early age despite his humble beginnings, Tokyo showed prodigious and extraordinary sculptural skills, displaying considerable talent for Deconstructivism. Tokyo’s rare ability to express our chaotic world, taking it apart bit by bit, has been described as a visionary, if vicious, commentary on societies double standards: fake news, neo-liberal politics and 21st century fascism. Not surprisingly, Tokyo’s work has quickly risen to international acclaim within the ranks of the Art World.
During the 90’s Gomila’s multi-media installations explored the deployment of new media with an emphasis on video as a sculptural form in its own right. Over this period, the electronic image has become the central medium in his artworks, developing from installations to single channel pieces. In the Last 20 years his works have been widely exhibited internationally including; Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. PRAGUE BIENNAL 1. Veletrzni Palace Museum, Prague. Artists Space New York. XI GRANCIA Sienna, Italy. Expoarte Mexico. Smart Project Space, Amsterdam. Franklin Art Works Minneapolis USA. NGBK Berlin. Museum of Contemporary Art Marseille. Kunstlerwerkstatt, Munich. FACT Liverpool. ICA London. Madrid Abierto 07. Francis Gomila currently lives and works in Greece and England UK
