Enter the Dragon (of the art realm, that is)

For those of you familiar with the somewhat underground world of Miami’s burgeoning art talent, the name Juan Travieso should ring a very loud bell. Gregarious and ambitious, Travieso, a 2009 graduate of the Art Center College of Design in picturesque Pasadena, CA , has participated in roughly twenty art exhibitions (solo, group, and invitational) in the past two years alone. A feature on his work ran in the Sun Sentinel just last month, and before heading off to Beantown (a Boston moniker for those of us not in the ‘know’) in mid-August where he will continue his studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA), he is once again jumping over the bar he has rigourously set for himself and bringing us 305 folks one final shindig prior to the big send off. The Flagler Arts Space presents New Tracks, a solo exhibition of Travieso’s works on canvas, hot off the press (talk about prolific, no piece is older than three months). The works stem from Travieso’s machismo-driven yet futile attempt to paint every single bird that is endangered these days. As the list grows, so does Travieso’s inefficacy. But the attempt is not without its merits- left behind is a stunning body of work that at its core encourages us to commune with nature and her gifts. The show premiers on Saturday, July 23rd at 6:30pm and will be open by appointment through the week.
