Back in the Club Days

Here are some pictures from my solo show I had over the summer at the Wynwood Exhibition Center. The canvas's that were shown were paintings I created in nightclubs right after I moved back to Miami from attending college at the Maryland Institute, College of Art.

 

I did the paintings with no intention of exhibiting them anytime soon. Since I thought the work would make more sense in the long term. But, I got to show them and I got mixed feelings which is what I was expecting. I was a little nervious to show them since it is not my current direction and people often misunderstand the context of where can artist can go. I, for one explore an area and let it go - then move on to the next journey.

LAST SUMMER

welcome to kikivaldes 4.0

Welcome everyone, this is my new blog. I will be posting stuff I like and things I'm up to. I moved to New York around October. The winter has been brutal. I have fallen on the icey concrete 5 times. It's been an adventure to say the least. But, this Miami boy is holding up pretty well. I have seen fights on the subway, have gone to some impressive museum shows and have gotten to hang out with old friends and new friends. My apartment is haunted and I have gotten lost a number of times inside the countries of Little Italy and China Town. I am just getting started friends. Stick around, it will be fun.
