Selected to participate in an Exhibition honoring Shepard Fairey
I’m excited to annonce that I was selected to be part of a special exhibition in honor of Shepard Fairey. Also known as Obey Giant, Shepard Fairy is a well-known street artist, activist, and illustrator, who became extremely popular during the 2008 U.S. presidential election for his Barack Obama “Hope” poster. This February, he will be awarded the Art Wynwood Tony Goldman Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award 2017, in Downtown Miami.
To celebrate this achievement, a small exhibition will be held. This exhibition is curated by Grela Orihuela, the Art Wynwood Contemporary Art Fair’s Director. She selected the work of about eight artists among all the artists represented at the Art Wynwood Fair (close to 500 hundred international artists – imagine!), to be exhibited beside an iconic work of Shepard Fairey – Black Gold. Beside Shepard Fairey, there was Tim Bessell x Andy Warhol, David Ramirez Gomez, Craig Alan and Maria Grondona. Two of my paintings were selected for the exhibition. It was such an honor to have my work selected by a curator of Mrs. Orihuela’s experience and shown beside such great artists!
The two paintings are “Ghost of a woman” and “Ce n’est pas où j’allais” (It’s not where I was going) – (yeah 🙂 ) to be hung in Downtown Miami during the Fair’s duration.
