World-renowned and long time Miami Artist and Activist Noel, will unveil his New Collection “COMPLEX SIMPLICITY”. Do not miss an exciting evening, and experience a new body of work from this Miami Beach’s Pioneer on May 20th at Colombostile.

As the name of this collection says it, this time the complexity, movement, fluidity, bold strokes, theatrical influences, and carefully crafted anatomy that Noel is known for, will be seen in a totally new and simpler approach. For those that know his work well, it will be hard to categorize Noelʼs works as simple. In this collection, simplicity comes about in the execution, choice and application of colors, texture and strokes, that are quite far from the précised and controlled ones used in the past. As a result of a very unique piece Noel created for his exhibitʼs main sponsor (pictured on invite) OOK Fine Art Hardware, the use of bright metallic paints for the highlights, will create an intense contrast against the richest and monochromatic tones of the oils. The result has an almost POP feeling, as POP as this classical artist can get. Noel will also be introducing four paintings that had been in the works for several years now, his homage to the Four Elements…not to be missed!!!

The stage for Noelʼs new collection couldnʼt be more appropriate. COLOMBOSTILE, a Milan based design house known worldwide for their amazing and unique creations, materials, and perfectly hand made pieces, offers a unique way to live luxury and exclusivity. All made in Italy, their pieces are works of arts, adorning many residences, hotels and even palaces throughout the world. Noel was very pleased, when COLOMBOSTILE invited him to exhibit his new collection at their Miami sala di esposizione…”there is no better place for me to show this collection.”

Noel is one of those artists whose work is constantly evolving. As a result of traveling with his exhibits extensible all over, Noel has the fortune to be exposed to the creativity and energy that is constantly present all over the World, especially throughout Europe. “the best thing that can happen to an artist, is to travel as much as possible and realized how endless and amazing our World is”

For the past four years, Noel has been doing Guest Solo exhibits on the Connoisseur Luxury Liners of Princess, Cunard, Holland American, and P&O, where he is represented by Global Fine Arts. Here, Noel is in the company of contemporary Masters the likes of Alexandra Nechita, Martiros, Peter Max, Bill Mack, Howard Behrens and Pierre Matisse. Noel was invited twice to be the Guest Solo Artist on the Queen Mary 2 for the New York City to London crossings.

His gallery representation and popularity is in constant growth, as it is his creativity. This past June, Noel was invited by Crisolart Gallery that represents him in Barcelona, to be part of the prestigious International Art Expo at The Louvre’s Carrousel in Paris, an opportunity most artistsʼ only dream of. The European Library of Artists selected Noel for the 2007-2008-2009 editions of their “100 Contemporary Artists of the World” book. In March of 2010, Noel was chosen as one of the artist for the first edition of the book “100 Artists of the Male Image” written by Eric Gibbons, and published by Firehouse Studios Publications. This early South Beach pioneer and staple of the Miami art scene is in constant evolution, which to no surprise, his national and international appeal keeps growing, and the demand of his works escalating worldwide.
