Any art lover who enjoys thought-provoking artworks and meeting talented and interesting artists is encouraged to attend.
About the Artist
Known for his provocative mixed media collages, artist Martín Sigwald blurs the lines between art and advertisement. He infuses art history with the language of commerce, covering his works with dollar bills and Coca Cola logos.
In Mona Flag, we see the Mona Lisa peeking out from behind the American Flag next to a stack of cash. In La Joven del Niqab, Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring disappears in a sea of bright, festive colors. Sigwald strips these iconic masterpieces of their historical value as if they were selling products to the masses.
