Miami-based pop and multimedia artist, sculptor and urban realist Miguel Paredes will unveil his newest piece of artwork, Superhero, at his Wynwood gallery.
â€œIâ€™ve been a comic book collector almost my entire life,â€ says Paredes. â€œAs a child, I often fantasized about having special powers, and those memories were a source of inspiration when creating Superhero. True to the Los NiÃ±os collection, my children were also involved in the creative process, and this eventually led me to paint my own interpretation of a superhero.â€
Superhero is a hand-painted oil on canvas piece measuring 48 inches by 60 inches. The foreground features a child who is elevating by using his superpowers and winged feet, while the background showcases the artistâ€™s personal comic book collection organized on a wooden bookshelf. A silver clock located on the upper-right-hand side of the bookshelf reads â€œ4:20â€ and is a reference to the artistâ€™s successful printing company, PK Graphics, located at 420 Lincoln Road in South Beach. Paredesâ€™ Birds, which are a recurring image in his works, are also featured and serve as the childâ€™s loyal, brave guardians. Superhero will be the last addition to the artistâ€™s well-known Los NiÃ±os collection.
At the premiere, guests will enjoy refreshing nitro ice cream treats (liquid nitrogen ice cream with premium fruity and nutty mix-ins), compliments of HaVen Gastro-Lounge. In addition, complimentary Zignum Mezcal signature cocktails will be available, along with beer from the Heineken Light art bar, a selection of Rex Goliath wines and sparkling water courtesy of Perrier. Local DJ Ari X will provide the tunes for the evening. PK Graphics is also a sponsor and supporter of the event.
