Kiki Valdes is an artist who likes to hurt a canvas before making love to it. In his attention-grabbing, expressionistic paintings, Valdes explores the tension between the figurative and abstract. He traffics in the weird and whimsical, creating absurdist narratives using cartoon masks and oddly bulging faces that lure viewers into a landscape that seems strangely familiar. Typically Valdes paints his surfaces with bold, colorful backgrounds, then cuts shapes from canvas he later applies to his paintings to create layered and textured collages. He culls inspiration from pop cultural neurosis, combining childhood reveries, quantum physics, American secret societies, string theory, and loopy Disney and Nickelodeon characters to create images that both provoke delight and anxiety. Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m., the inventive talent, who is repped by the Michael Margulies Artist Agency, is opening "The Valdeziacs" at 101 Exhibit (101 NE 40th St., Miami), his new suite of works in which the funny battles constantly with the fantastical.

The Buried Pistol

Posted 2013-01-21 13:43:39 | Views: 14,209

It was Cuba early 1960's and the Castro regime started to confiscate guns away from it's citizens. A 40 something year old father of 4 knew they were coming for his gun...in an act of protest he buried his gun on his property. When they came to take it from him...he denied that he owned one. It is still buried to this day in a brush of grass somewhere by Placetas, Cuba. I would love to get my hands on my grandfathers gun...bring it to the USA and see these parasites try to take it from me.

Domingo at 18 (1944)

MARGULIES AT 

The studio pop up experiment otherwise known as 'STUDIO WORLD' was a success. I want to thank AID FOR AIDS for getting me involved and we were able to sell over ten original small scale artworks to benefit the organization. I would also like to thank my agent Michael Margulies for inviting his family for joining us. It was an honor to have Martin Margulies stopping by and seeing my work in person. Thanks again to everyone that bought artwork and those that stuck around till we closed. Btw, check out todays Miami Herald article on Martin Margulies art collection
