Derek Gores creates collage portraits from recycled magazines, labels, data, and assorted analog and digital materials. He describes his works as, “ a classic beauty, but made of raw and geometric and un-designed parts. My real subject in the figurative women is the study of ‘Fierce’. Strength, honesty, vulnerability- admired with utmost respect.” Gores’ design clients include Dwell Magazine, Lincoln Motor Co., ESPN, Lenny Kravitz, Lucasfilm, Kings of Leon, U2, Adidas, Madonna, Harley Davidson, Standard Collective, the National Football League, LiveNation, SEIU and more. Derek was honored to have his work selected for the Manifest Hope DC exhibit coinciding with the Presidential Inauguration in 2009, and in 2010 he was named “One of the 40 important artists of the New Contemporary Movement,” while in an exhibition in London.
