Neo-Pop Artist Ed King Makes Offering to the Art Gods
The sun has been in hiding for the past couple of days, and we’ve all been going through withdrawal. Citizens of Miami have been seen huddling around fluorescent lights and doing the sun-dance – a move that strangely resembles the Macarena. Since wetness is in the forecast for the next few days we have a rainy-day, cabin fever suggestion for you that will make you appear cultured – as opposed to insane.
Go downtown Friday night, to Soya & Pomodoro (120 N.E. 1st Street, Miami), for the opening of “A Place to Call Home.” Neo-pop artist Ed King will be displaying his latest offering to the art gods, a collection of chromatic bliss. Take your mind off the fact that you haven’t been able to wear your favorite Jackie O shades and enjoy the fruits of King’s labor – the piece above can get you started.
Other artisans included in the exhibit are Xavier Cortada, Jean Villamizar, Luis Valle, Diego Romero, Eric Walton, Scott Hickey, Ignacio Font, and Matt Stock. The reception is from 7-10 p.m. but you can check out the exhibit until October 5. Visit www.kaleidoscopeconspiracy.com to see more of Ed’s work. --Raina McLeod
