STOP Gun Violence

This is a project/booklet I designed in 2010 when I was still a student at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. I chose the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence (www.bradycampaign.org/)  and created a booklet that was  designed to make an impact, grab attention and give important information; crucial facts and how to help . Due to so many recent events of violence, I decided to post this. As a designer I like to mix textures, hand drawn vectors, and photography. The color yellow was inspired from the movie Kill Bill, (although here it doesn’t show up as bright). I tried to avoid typical black or red color on the background. On a personal note let’s hope things will change  S O O N. Let’s pray for those that need it the most. (Photography Credits Getty Images)

Eddie Villanueva. This was his first time exhibiting at Art Basel, what an experience must have been for him. He showed a large scale installation, made of wood I presume. His work deals with space, movement, balance, contrast; from my point of view. I had an amazing time meeting these fine artists for the first time, they all are talented, creative and unique. I wish them all the very best!

Art Basel Miami 2012: Mr. Brainwash

I loved Art Basel Miami. This is if not, the most important art show in the United States. Art Basel is not only about art, but also about living the whole experience: the city, the people, the music, the new and unexpected. I will be posting photos throughout the week(s) of some amazing and bold art pieces. Today, I want to post photos of the work of Mr. Brainwash (MBW). Born in France, his real name is Thierry Guetta. Mr. Brainwash is a filmmaker and street artist. His compositions are a mix of graffiti and pop art; he uses famous images of people or things (Madonna, Chaplin, The Beatles) in his work. What I like about his pieces is the positive messages he uses, it shows enthusiasm and without a doubt love. Here, some photos I took @ Mr. Brainwash show.
