Photographs from a Private Viewing of Alexander Mijares at Ocean House on 6/28/12

Private Viewing of Alexander Mijares at Ocean House South Beach on Thursday, June 28, 2012.

Ocean House and owner iStar Residential hosted a private viewing of never-before-seen works by local breakout artist Alexander Mijares on Thursday, June 28, 2012. Held in Beach House I – the oceanfront property’s only 6,000-square foot bi-level residences still on the market – the exclusive preview event attracted more than 450 VIPs and art enthusiasts and resulted in impressive sales. Mijares’ pledge to donate ten percent of proceeds from sales of art during the event to Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida, coupled with a personal contribution, amounted to a $5,000 donation that will find one “Wish” for a child with a life-threatening condition.

Known for his contemporary style that mixes traditional and street art with a Spanish influence, Mijares’ colorful paintings of bright reds, blues and yellows transformed the palatial, designer-ready residence into a warm, vibrant environment and captured the attention of seven buyers. Of the 22 works showcased, including one piece specially commissioned for event sponsor Stolichnaya elit Ultra Luxury Vodka, select pieces sold included “I Heart Fashion,” “Yesterday,” “Street Sanctuary,” and “Red Soul,” which was purchased by Seattle Seahawk Wide Receiver Sidney Rice, among others.

Other esteemed guests in attendance included iStar Residential’s Anthony Burns and George Helmstetter; Cervera Real Estate’s Alicia Cervera Lamadrid and Sildy Cervera; attorney Ralph G. Patino, who also purchased a painting; Atlantitech owner George Wallner; Inca Swimwear co-owner and designer Stacy Josloff; J.C. Carey Motor owner J.C. Carey; Body & Soul owners Alex and Carolina Pirez; The Paradise Fund Founder Loy Anderson; and socialites Malinka Max and Nicole Lozano.
