Dustin Orlando Scares up Cafeina Fright Fest with "Into the Void"
|In Cold Black Mountain|
Enter Wynwood pioneer Dustin Orlando, who has been invited to add gravitas to the hipster dive with the exhibit "Into the Void," opening 7 p.m. tonight and again during this weekend's Second Saturday culture crawl.
It's a spooky group show that explores the relationship between the subconscious and the occult. Orlando says the exhibit "materializes that area of perception easily infiltrated by the subversive and the supernatural." Sort of like the same feeling materializing after a few rounds of Café con Leche Martinis at the snazzy joint cum gallery space.

Orlando returns to the 305 after his peripatetic wanderings in Hawaii and Texas to mainline Cafeina with a trademark injection of the gritty, outsider juice he's noted for trafficking in. Let's just state unequivocally, Cafeina has long been Jonesing for a hallucinatory dose of the mind-fucking work Orlando has a sweet tooth for.

The indie curator says artists in his show have "orchestrated a beautiful symphony of mysticism, chronicling everything from Norse mythology to heavy metal". Expect to see a variety of works in various mediums and styles Orlando says. "A heavy selection of the work will be bold, graphical and illustrative, but there will also be an even distribution of softer paintings and drawings that aren't so hard edged".
"There may also be a site specific installation and possible wall painting, but we'll see, just depends on time," Orlando says.
