“Imaginarium” by Alejandro Plaza Opening Night

"Imaginarium" by Alejandro Plaza Opening NightFriday, August 7, 7pm-10pm – Canale Diaz Art Center, 146 Madeira Ave, Coral Gables

Canale Diaz Art Center presents Alejandro Plaza, a known young artist whose iconography – a combination of neo-pop and neo-kineticism – has managed to permeate into the Venezuelan imagery. “Imaginarium” will delight collectors and art enthusiasts from July 30th to October 3rd. A total of 23 artworks will be showcased throughout “Imaginarium’s” 9 weeks duration, including a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S luxury sport car, in partnership with Prestige USA Sport Cars. Plaza designed and applied the art with a load of perfection and attention to details. Using his geometric abstraction heritage, he transformed the vehicle’s body in a dynamic universe of fragmented shapes and colors generating movement on their own. Similarly, Plaza used an Essex Grand Piano EGP 183, designed by the renowned manufacturer Steinway & Sons, as his painting surface transferring all the energy of his imagination. For “Imaginarium” Alejandro Plaza and Canale Diaz Art Center have combined their will and efforts in this solo show to benefit the Maestro Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization established to help homeless and neglected children in developing Latin American countries. Maestro Cares seeks to offer assistance to these children while supporting social services and other development programs. The artist, Maestro Cares representatives, art critics, collectors, entrepreneurs and special guests will be present.
