Arcadia Salon with Pedro Morales May 2 at the Geometric MADI

Join us at the museum this Wednesday, May 2 at 6 p.m. for an Arcadia Salon with mobile-tagging artist Pedro Morales 

Morales uses the aesthetics of fractals and geometric abstraction to investigate the ubiquity of mobile technology in today’s life. Morales coined the phrase “mobile tagging art” to define the artistic expression that uses scanning, decoding and reading out geometric shapes to reveal content from aesthetic beauty.

Morales lives and works in Houston and Versailles, France.

The show featuring Morales’ work and that of sculptor Miguel Prypchan runs April 27-July 15.

About Miguel Prypchan
Plastic artist, pilot, and lawyer Miguel Prypchan lives and works in Caracas Venezuela. He is a graduate of Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV), with studies in Social Communication and Museology. He began to craft in a three-dimensional sphere in 2007. Art fairs from Caracas, Bogata, and Lima to New York, Palm Beach, and Miami showcase his work. His art interprets traditional landscape through the eyes of abstractionism, light, angles, perspective, and constructivism. Through it, he intervenes, humanizes and positively transforms public spaces and in many cases, viewers.

Morales received the Arturo Michelena Art Research Award in the Arts (1991). Venues in Linz, Shanghai, Paris, Bogota, Miami, and Caracas are just some of the locales throughout the world to display his work. He is the recipient of recognition and awards on numerous occasions and represented Venezuela in the 50th Venice Biennial “The Dictatorship of the Spectator” and his iconic “cityrooms.net” (2002-3), are among the first artistic creations made in and for the Internet.
