ARTECHOUR Live this Week – Miami Art Week Edition
To celebrate Miami Art Week 2020, we’re hosting a special edition of our ARTECHOUR Instagram Live series that will focus on our creative collaborations within the local Miami community.
For three days in a row – Dec 2, 3 and 4 at 5pm EST – we’ll host a live conversation on our @ARTECHOUSE Instagram account with a different Miami-based artist that we’ve worked with at ARTECHOUSE Miami.
Wed Dec 2 @ 5pm EST – Haiiileen
Aileen Quintana, also known by her artist name Haiiileen, is an interdisciplinary Cuban-American artist native to Miami. Haiiileen channels her synesthesia, a rare sensory condition which transforms everything she hears into visual imagery, into her bold, boundary-pushing work that spans visual art, performance, design and more.
She often uses light as a medium, this time combining Classic Blue with her own abstract interpretation of sparkling light reflected on the ocean. Haiiileen strives to understand light as a language, producing work based on light science and finding inspiration in how much she can draw out of this basic element.
For her piece “Agua Haiii” in Aqueous, Haiiileen has created what she describes as a “blue iridescent reality” for visitors to explore, with domes offering a glimpse into another world and rich textures representing waves. @Haiiileen
Thu Dec 3 @ 5pm EST – Alvin Surreal
Born and raised in Miami, Alvin Hernandez began creating at an early age after gaining inspiration from 90s cartoons. His current work is informed by surrealism, leading to fun, spontaneous paintings that Hernandez refers to as “painted poems,” or illustrations of inner feelings and thoughts.
The immersive mural piece created for Aqueous combines his usual style with the energy and flow of deep blue waves. Visitors are transported to a surreal dream interpretation of Classic Blue and its strong ties to water. @AlvinSurreal
Fri Dec 4 @ 5pm EST – Lola Blu
Lola Blu is best known for merging the worlds of contemporary art and music by bringing to life unconventional canvases that grace some of the most well known stages across the globe.
Self taught artist and drummer, Lola started her pop culture journey in the commercial world which equipped her with the visual vocabulary of mass culture that now translates into her very distinctive and easily recognizable style. Lola brought this distinctive style to the walls of ARTECHOUSE Miami. @Lola_Blu
