Basel Blindness by Javier Martin
December 4, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Mr. Edward De Valle II and Mathew De Valle cordially invite you to the Art exhibition “Basel Blindness” by Spanish artist Javier Martin on December 4th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Valli Art Gallery in Wynwood.
The Spanish artist, who has developed most of his artwork in the disciplines of painting and sculpture, will be presenting his “Basel Blindness” collection. Martin, a self-taught artist who at the age of seven was awarded the Young Artist Caja de Madrid award, and has showed in Europe, Asia, Latin America and the US, will present his new collection based on neon lights that veil the eyes, concealing ones true beauty focus the gaze within, and contemplating the true meaning of blindness.
Martin is recognized for his works that suggest the lack of vision of his models—caused by his art. With this, he seeks to make a statement based on how society judges without looking deeper into people.
