NEW REWARD: Hand Sown Painting by Puerto Rican Artist Chago Flores
We're excited to announce a new reward. Puerto Rican painter Santiago "Chago" Flores (represented by the Petrus Gallery in Puerto Rico, exhibited at Museum of the Americas, and recipient of last year's Jackson Pollock Foundation Grant) has generously donated one of his works. His process is fantastic: After Flores makes several paintings, he takes the canvases apart & cuts them into pieces, finally rearranging & hand sowing the cloth together with sequins. Below are photos of "Celeste" and a brief bio about the artist. In support of Mala Mala, Flores recommended we price the work at $900, three times less than the listed gallery price. Email or call us with any questions at DanandAntonio@gmail.com or 787 398 8591.
Have a nice Tuesday! -Dan & Antonio
Dimensions: 44˝ x 44˝
