Recent work by Miami based artist Pedro Vizcaino will be presented at the Farside Gallery located at 1305 SW 87th Avenue in Miami. The paintings, constructions and drawings by Pedro Vizcaino deepen and diversify his unique approach to images, which are at once evocative of innocence and violence. A spontaneous approach to technique-inspired by graffiti and the drawings of children-exults in the paradoxes implicit in images of tanks, cell phones, toy guns, shoes and other images long associated with Vizcaino's work. Cardboard and molded packing materials used to protect fragile items-eggs, bottles-contribute to Vizcaino's furiously urban, highly charged yet lyrical visual concert of forms in radical motion and transformation.
Vizcaino was born in Havana Cuba in 1966 and has lived in Miami since 1993. He has participated in numerous solo exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad including: Figarelli Contemporary Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ, Miami-Dade College in Miami FL, Ambrosino Gallery in Miami, FL, A+ Resources Fine Art Gallery in Miami, FL among others. He has had group exhibits at Kunthaus Gallery in Miami: FL, Snitzer Gallery, Museum of Latin American Art (MoLAA) Long Beach, CA, Paul Sharpe, New York city. Vizcaino has also received several awards and his work can be found in important public collections such as the National Museum of Fine Art, a Havana, Cuba, The Ninart Cultural Center in Mexico City, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Miami, FL.
