The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, run by Florida Arts, Inc. (a 501c3 organization), is dedicated to bringing world-class art events to the Southwest Florida community. Each month, the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center features new art exhibits from both local and world-renowned artists, and on Friday, January 3rd, we encourage you to join the art center for the grand opening of a new exhibit, Archangels.
Many artists have been influenced by street art methods and techniques and are utilizing less conventional mediums for their creations, bringing the street art they create back indoors to a more formal setting. Frank Henriquez’s exciting and provocative exhibition, “Archangels”, takes us for a stroll down an alley where urban expressionism and traditional painting meet.
His use of unconventional materials such as stencil cutouts, and spray paint on recycled materials; glass, windows, doors, and plywood, is an ode to urban street art. His choice of subject matter rooted firmly in social-political issues, bringing awareness to these issues in his work also suggests the strong influences of street art. Henriquez’s work is greatly influenced by expressionism, his approach to the deconstruction of images using acrylics and spray paint and his brushstrokes are suggestive of feelings.
His use of windows as a canvas show transparency in emotions and creates layers of abstraction when colliding with the images, this brings out the expressionistic style in his work.
Street art is the fastest way for visual artists to reach their audience, as it is displayed publicly it reaches a broader and more randomized audience, making it a very powerful method of expression. Street art bridges the gap between generations, it offers art for all to experience and enjoys. We are proud to offer you “Archangels” an exhibition where we capture the essence of this celebrated style and bring it back to its origins, if only for a limited time.
General admission is $1.00. For more information, please visit www.sbdac.com or call (239) 333-1933.
