Pan American Art Projects is very pleased to announce our next exhibition of works by artists Luis Cruz Azaceta and Luis Enrique Camejo.
In this exhibition Luis Enrique Camejo illustrates his impressions about Miami, focusing on Miami Beach with its pedestrian zones and on downtown with its tall buildings and car traffic. His paintings are like a virtual tour through the city, illustrating recognizable or forgotten city corners at an almost life size. The images become almost documental; Camejo chose to represent different parts of the city, including some that have changed since his last visit. A good example is his diptych titled Vacio (Emptiness)portraying the corner of Miami Beach where the Ghirardelli store used to be, today a candy store. He also captures details of the Miamian urban life such as the interruptions and the traffic congestion provoked by open bridges in downtown. He is fascinated by the city life, the tall buildings, the highways and the speed of cars. His eye captures what might be seen as monotonous for the people who live in the place, but which become unpredictable views from any given street.
Luis Enrique Camejo was born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba, in1971, and currently lives and works in Havana. He attended the Superior Art Institute and the National Art School, both in Havana, Cuba. His work has been exhibited worldwide and can be found in many collections.
