Handcrafted Tattoo & Art Gallery Presents
â€œUp & Awayâ€ Alex Yanes Partners With Ink Masterâ€™s Chris Nunez For Last Solo Exhibition In Miami At Handcrafted Tattoo and Art Gallery
Coming back from his recent sold-out exhibition at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles, local favorite Alex Yanes has no signs of slowing down, at least not until after his solo exhibition. Acclaimed artist, Alex Yanes, will present a his last solo exhibition in Miami, entitled â€œUp & Awayâ€œ at Handcrafted Miami during Wynwoodâ€™s 2nd Saturdayâ€™s Art Walk on Saturday, November 9th. Handcrafted is the brainchild of world-renowned tattoo artist and Spike TV’s Ink Master reality star, Chris Nunez. Nunez has transformed a 3,000 square foot space in Miamiâ€™s Wynwood Arts District into an uber hip tattoo parlor and art gallery. Once you walk through the parlor, you enter their gallery space, which also has a garage door leading to their outdoor patio. The multi-use concept combines tattoo enthusiasts love for ink and art.
â€œI had this concept of an open art space, as much open space as possible because I wanted to break the mold of traditional tattoo shops, the stuffiness and people having to work on top of each other.â€ He worked closely with designer, Sean Saladino, brother of Pride and Joy owner and designer, Mike Saladino. Chris continues, â€With the gallery, we wanted to do the environment where you go from the warm kind of eclectic reclaimed but comfy feel from the lighting to the floor to the walls.â€
Yanes will exhibit new, never-before-seen works, as this will also be his last exhibition in Miami. The 3,000 square foot gallery will house over 20 of his strikingly colorful 2 and 3D mixed media works on wood including his custom, wall-mounted, Bluetooth speaker boxes. Additionally, he will be debuting a brand new customized speaker system created from a 1960â€™s refurbished speaker console complete with Technics turntables and his signature wood cutouts. Whimsical, yet relatable, Yanesâ€™ art embodies an innovative use of color and imaginative subject matter that has become a staple in Miamiâ€™s Wynwood Art District.
Doors will open to VIPâ€™s and collectors privately from 7-8pm and to the public from 8-11pm. Enjoy beats by DJ Rage Johnson and complimentary signature cocktails by Deep Eddy all-natural premium vodka and PerrierÂ® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water.
