The Mark Miller gallery is pleased to present “New York Stories” by renowned artist Felipe Galindo. December 13-December 27, 2015 – Opening Reception Sunday December 13 from 2-5 PM, Mark Miller Gallery, 92 Orchard Street, Lower East Side, New York City. Free and open to the public.
The exhibits features a series of artworks created on disposable objects, as well as a series of sketches of New York City life, created during the past three decades.
Guided by the graphic qualities of throwaway materials (milk cartons, shopping bags and takeout containers, to name a few,) Galindo makes humorous observations on everyday life and comments on today’s consumer society while celebrating life in the artist’s adopted city.
Galindo’s work gives new life to the debris of our market economy and creates unique works of art inspired by the beauty and complexity of castaway objects.
