Victor Deupi is a Cuban American architect and architectural historian dedicated to promoting representational painting as a critical component of contemporary art and architecture. Inspired by Italy’s majestic cities, monuments, and landscapes – as well as the preceding generations of architects and artists who immersed themselves in the grandeur of Bell’Italia – his watercolors and paintings represent the timeless expression of architectural form and space. Painted largely in situ, Deupi’s works capture the spirit of art, architecture, and landscape while providing compelling vistas onto classical culture’s enduring legacy in the modern age.
Dr. Deupi received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia, a Master of Architecture from Yale University, and a Ph.D. in Architectural History & Theory from the University of Pennsylvania. Presently he is a Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Miami, and his book, Architectural Temperance: Spain and Rome, 1700-1759, was published by Routledge in 2015.
This exhibit featuring over 20 original works, opens on Friday, June 5 – Mercedes Benz of Coral Gables Gallery Night Live at the Museum.
