Miami’s history is colorful, multicultural, and exotioc. It is a leader in the arts and is home to many outstanding museums, including the Frost Art Museum, the Miami Art Museum, and the Miami-Dade Cultural Center. The city is also home to the world’s largest art exhibition, dubbed the “Olympics of Art”, Art Basel Miami, an event held annually in December attracting thousands of visitors from around the world. I have repeatedly exhibited my work at Art Basel Miami, in addition to other major exhibitions in my native Honduras and in New York City.
Since the late 1960s, Miami has become a heady mix of cultural influences and has experienced a large population growth from the Caribbean and Central and South America. As of the last U. S. Census, the Miami Metropolitan Area was home to 5.5 million people. Miami has become a major international financial and cultural center. It is the second-largest U. S. city (after El Paso, Texas) with a Spanish-speaking majority, and is the largest city with a Cuban-American plurality. This has led Miami sometimes to be called “the Capital of Latin America.”
The vibrant environment of Miami has inspired me often to use bold, bright, exotic colors in my works of art, whether in painting, prints, or photography. I think you will find that my work could bring life, color, and energy to any space in your home, and I cordially invite you to visit my online shop.
