As the 10 year anniversary of the day approaches, Leonardo Hidalgo, internationally known pop artist based in Miami, will be telling the story of 9/11 from an artistic uplifting perspective through his eye popping vibrant color large scale paintings. A private unveiling will take place in honor of The City Of Miami Firefighters who will be in attendance.
This exhibition is designed to give Miami residents and art enthusiasts a place to go and experience the visual feast artist Hidalgo has created consisting of 18 pieces of large scale paintings exploring the meaning of good and evil, heroes, freedom, liberty, and the force of divine justice while honoring the memory of those lost in the attacks of 9/11 in New York, the firefighters, police rescue units and the soldiers who have sacrificed their lives to defend our liberty.
Hidalgo says, â€œI think it will be a very special moment to be together that night with the firefighters, our true heroes, and honor them while REMEMBERING a moment in history that changed the world forever. I hope that with my art I can make people feel and believe in liberty, justice, and spread some heroic virtues in the consciousness of society.â€
Hidalgoâ€™s unique style combines pop art, the American way of life, comics of his time, and Japanese art.
Ecuadorian by birth, Hidalgo, has made the United States his home since 1990 and lives painting as a career ever since.
