The murals and installations for Vitality and Verve III: Transforming the Urban Landscape at the Long Beach Museum of art have been underway for a week now and the artists’ various visions continue to come to fruition.
Below are a few shots of Juan Travieso’s bold mural as a work in progress at the Long Beach Museum of Art.
Juan Travieso (born Havana, Cuba 1987), is an artist based in Miami and New York. His work explores notions of impermanence and decay through a combined language of pop, realism, and abstraction. Figures, be them humans or animals, are broken up into spaces and forms much like 3d models, speaking to both their temporality and transition into the digital age. What once was abstractions interacting with disappearing animals, are now figures of disappearing and transforming ideologies and culture. Travieso is a dynamic maker, he approaches painting with great appetite and produces a feast for the eyes and mind.
Join us Friday, June 29th for the opening night gala, After Dark.
