Street artist extraordinaire Luis Valle, whose colorful, embellished patterns adorn the walls of Miami’s urban hoods, is curating an exciting exhibit at Brisky Gallery, a central art space in Wynwood where Valle serves as director.
The two-year old gallery is showcasing “Rendering Thoughts: Sublime Interpretations of the Mind” open to the public through March 29, 2014.
He writes, “The artists’ mind is a curious enigma, which onlookers ponder. Who, What, Why, Where and How did the artist get to this creation are questions asked by the viewer. Each artist in the show takes a unique approach to manifesting his or her creation. The artist vision first starts as a feeling or a thought, which must then be molded and formed with physical materials in order to be born.”

The current exhibition features over nineteen international and local artists. Among the exhibitionists are LEZA ONE, a graffiti artist from Geneva who experiments with tags, throw-ups, 2-D and 3-D letters.
German artists Thitz, best known for colorful paintings depicting busy urban scenes created on paper bags is also included in the line-up.

One highlight of the exhibition is a selection from Alissa Christine’s I Love Miami 365, a series of poetic snapshots of the Magic City, one for every day of the year, captured by the photographer and captioned with a short evocative description of the image.
