About Derek


In his wild collage portraits, Derek Gores recycles magazines, labels, data, and assorted found analog and digital materials to create the works on canvas. The Rhode Island School of Design graduate 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. Gores’ design clients include Grey Goose, Dwell, Lincoln Motor Co., ESPN, Lenny Kravitz, Lucasfilm, Kings of Leon, U2, Adidas, Madonna, Harley Davidson, Standard Collective, the National Football League, LiveNation, New England Journal of Medicine, Nokia and more.

Derek explains his work by saying, “I like my pictures to barely come together, with teasing little details. I’m after more than a frozen moment, tempting the memories of the fierce subject, and the audience too, if I’m lucky.”


Derek is an AAD guest curator

It's amazing to see the difference in detail, color and saturation between the collages and other materials you use... mixed media, drawing, etc. Your collages are much more dramatic and mind capturing. I also work in collage, your work is very inspiring.
