The renowned Sculptor, SALVATORE ZAGAMI, father of Chemical Line Imagery, has exhibited in the company of Fernando Botero, Kenny Scharf, Andrew Wyeth and Conrad Marca-Relli, to name a few. On display will be his ‘psychological’ works as well as his legacy of earlier sculptures and multimedia works. In evidence is his world view, to paraphrase, “Making my art is my only way to participate in the world. It is better to create than destroy. Destruction is simple. People who create rather than destroy are evolving into the architects of our society and the standard bearers of our hopeful future. ” Titled “Man’s Best Friend” Pretty brazen title for the year of #MeTo
DANIEL STANFORD, fine art luminary has traveled the globe in a quest for higher planes of being. His signature style is evident on acclaimed campaigns that include Lancôme Cosmetics ™ and Guess Jeans™. His cultural influences play an integral role in his aesthetic and a multimedia process informs his work as artist, painter and photographer. His celebrity portraiture appears in the collections of Rhianna, Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga and his equestrian influenced ‘Arabia Dream‘ is featured in the film ‘House of Versace’. With distinguished Galleries and fellow artist Data – Stanford will be curating the two group exhibits.
YANLUIS BERGARECHE a masterful futuristic realist is considered a ” rock art star” and immensely successful in the cosmopolitan Havana , Cuba. Bergareche relies on a profound connection with the nature of things and depicts a world that is off kilter, and out-of-sync with the natural harmony; that is life itself. This prescience is evident in his breathtaking obras exhibited for the first time to coincide with ArtBasel – Miami. The 18th iteration of ArtBasel-Miami is a city wide event and uber art fair that has its genesis in a celebration and veneration of Latin Art, from Botero to Bergareche.
Behind a visage of Zen like calm, Bergareche is an artist that commands his craft with imagery of roiling complexity. He will exhibit his mastery of the medium with a live mural creation at the Miami Fashion Collective 4PM on Saturday, December 8. 731 NW 28th Street, West Wynwood- FAD.District. (Fashion Allapattah Design District).
Bergareche is a startling milestone on the darkly lit road once traveled by the likes of H.R. Giger (the son of a botanist, a friend and kind gentle soul) Bosch, Bruegel, Lovecraft, Poe and Kafka.
We are at a nexus of survival of this curious species or what seems our inevitable demise…as TS Elliot mused “this is the world ends , this is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper…
