Cafe con Leche
Miriam Fernandes Gallery, a new open space located in Miami’s Design District, launches with “Cuba Con Leche” by Rick Garcia on November 14.
A Miami native with “Cuban blood,” Garcia developed his unique Pop style in acrylic on canvas by incorporating Cuban and American pop cultural icons with bright colors, extraordinary details from every day life, and a key Cuban map within each work. He’s most known for being the Absolut artist of the 90’s, and as a three time official Artist of the Grammy Awards.
SocialMiami had the opportunity to ask Garcia some questions about a variety of subjects including Cuba, his inspirations and, of course, Cuba Con Leche.
