Thinkspace Family artist Cinta Vidal completed a stunning mural at the Honolulu Museum of Art during Pow! Wow! Hawaii this year that we were honored to curate. The above video documents the creation of this mural in addition to an interview with Cinta about her inspiration. We’re excited to see Cinta Vidal in action again in a few weeks as she works on a featured installation for Juxtapozed at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.
Cinta Vidal was interviewed for the December 2016 issue of Juxtapoz magazine discussing her love of gravity and the details of her creative process. The issue is on newsstands now and the interview can be viewed on Juxtapoz.com.
Cinta Vidal‘s gravity defying work has been capturing the attention of the art world. She’s executed murals around the world from Long Beach to Tokyo, and her topsy-turvy pieces continue to be in demand. We’re excited to be showing new pieces from Cinta Vidal at Scope Miami this week, and for those interested in seeing new work from Vidal make sure to sign up for our mailing list to receive the preview.
How do you manage the accelerated pace of the demand for your work?
I am very happy to see that many people like what I do. I receive many proposals and I would like to accept all of them but I can’t. I am learning to manage this. It is not easy to say no, but I have to say it often. Sometimes it is frustrating, because I am forced to reject really interesting proposals. But I can’t complain. I paint what I really want to paint and I am able to earn a living with that. I know I am very fortunate. – Cinta Vidal in Juxtapoz

This weekend we will be at the POW! WOW! Worldwide booth (H31) at ComplexCon in Long Beach taking place at the Long Beach Convention Center.
Not only will we have a wall of 30 incredible works from our past POW! WOW! exhibitions, but new print editions from Cinta Vidal and Casey Weldon. Artist James Jean has created a site-specific mural and incredible installation presented by POW! WOW! and Imprint Labplus that will have to be seen in person. All those who attend will walk away with a little piece of history from Jean.
The Creators Project featured Cinta Vidal’s new mural for Pow! Wow! Japan that includes sketches of the mural and the inspiration behind its design.
We’re excited to share that Cinta Vidal will have a mini solo with us later this year at Scope Miami to close out a very successful 2016 for the artist.
“This mural is inspired by the ping pong table in the school’s common area where all the kids hang out.” Ping pong seems to be a universal language among the kids, bit also the artists at POW! WOW!, many of whom learned English as a second or third language. – The Creators Project

This Work recently published an interview with artist Cinta Vidal, who had a successful solo exhibition at Thinkspace Gallery back in July. View ‘This Works’ interview on their website and check out our own interview with Cinta Vidal discussing her exhibition Gravities.
Some years ago I started playing with gravity in order to represent the different points of view we all have from the world. We often live close to each other but have a very different perception from our environment. This is what I try to represent when I play with gravity. – Cinta Vidal via This Works interview
