Miami, Florida FL
Celebrating Women… Celebrating Art …. MANO Fine Art presents an encore reception for Faux Perfection, featuring the work of guest artist Toa Castellanos.
Faux Perfection is a multimedia exhibition which explores the concept and consequences of beauty as it is manifested by contemporary society. Castellanos employs the use of collage, drawing, painting, photography and installations both as technique and as a metaphor to bring a poignant focus to displaced values of beauty.
The event will take place during the Bird Road Art Walk.
About Toa Castellanos:
Toa Castellanos is passionate about many things, as an artist she channels her passion for life to explore issues that are consciously most pressing to her: women’s role in contemporary society, ecology, social justice and non-religious spirituality. In her search for expression Castellanos has mastered painting, collaging, print making, etching, monotypes, book art, and other mediums that allow her to articulate her fervor and concerns via several art forms.
Born in Cuba, raised and educated in the United States, with an MA in Art & Education from the University of Notre Dame, Toa Castellanos started her professional career as an artist in Latin America, where she worked with renowned Columbian artist Pedro Alcantara Herran, and established Cuadrante, a serigraph studio with Armando Martinez Berrio, Virginia Amaya, and Phanor Leon, and later worked with Fabio Daza and his group T-Graba until 2000 when she relocated to the USA. Since arriving to Miami, Castellanos has been actively involved in Miami’s growing art scene.
MANO Fine Art Project Space is the working studio of Miami-based artist MANO and an exhibition and project space for art related events. MANO Fine Art participates in the Bird Road Art Walk, held on the third Saturday of each month.
