Spanish celebrities gathered at Biscayne Art House last Friday March 14 to celebrate the opening of “FACES,” an exhibition showcasing the work of renowned Spanish actor and artist Jordi Mollà and guest artist Antonio Del Prete. Guests at the opening night cocktail included Nacho Cano, former member of the famous ´80s rock band “Mecano;” Shaila Dúrcal, singer, composer and daughter of singer Rocío Dúrcal; Antonio (el Junior) Morales, singer and actor; and artist Ana Obregón.
Jordi Mollà wowed the crowd on Friday with his “FACES” collection, a series of mixed media pieces depicting his face in various states of emotion with graffiti-like markings over the pictures. Mollà is known not only for his art, which he has shown in prominent art fairs such Art Basel, but also for his roles in films like Blow, Bad Boys II, Colombiana and other Spanish titles.
Italian artist Antonio Del Prete joined the exhibition, showcasing his version of serious classical paintings with a whimsical twist of pop culture and political commentary, which he uses to critique the contradictions of today´s society.
“It is an honor for us to host artists like Jordi and Antonio. We love enriching Miami’s art scene with the works of international artists,” said Ana Maria de Piña, manager of Biscayne Art House.
Biscayne Art House is sponsored by BiscayneCapital™, a boutique wealth assessment firm and one of the preeminent providers of banking services to high-net-worth individuals and families in Latin America. “We are proud to sponsor such a unique art center that shares international culture with its community” said Roberto Cortes, CEO of Biscayne Capital.
