kiki valdes miami artKiki Valdes x MDPLS Opening Reception November 21st

This Saturday November 21st, Miami artist Kiki Valdes will be exhibiting his latest work at he Main Library lobby in Downtown Miami. A succession of new paintings by Kiki Valdes created on site through the Miami-Dade Public Library’s artist pop‑up studio program. The vitality of the large works on view will highlight the painter’s proficiency with materials and surface. Valdes uses a familiar cartoon sensibility in his mark making that is honest in its wistfulness with semi‑abstractions and metaphorical settings.

Kiki Valdes was born in Miami, FL in 1981. He attended The Maryland Institute College of Art where he majored in painting. He has his work in various collections around the country and abroad. Last year Valdes had a one man show at The National Arts Club in Gramercy Park, sharing the season exhibition catalog with such artists as Edvard Munch and Ilya & Emilia Kabakov.
