Artes de la Rosa’s Gallery (Galería de la Rosa) is pleased to present Truly Yours…Revamped by artist Michel Cruz Flores. Michel has a large body of pieces where influences of the artists Mexican heritage and urban upbringing can be seen. Bold and bright colors work hand in hand with large scope canvases to create pieces that create an impacting statement for the audience. Michel has enhanced his artistry and skill by hand-making canvases and using other materials such as plexiglass, wood panels and particleboard. He does not limit his use of mediums and leverages acrylic, oil, ink, aerosol, and markers. The exhibit will feature the much raved about Emotionally Disturbed series, which depicts negative emotions, such as Anxiety, Envy, and Bipolar through original characters. The exhibit will also include additional pieces to the Pistolero series, as well as portrait pieces using an exaggerated caricature styling. Realizing that within the language of art there are so many visual dialects to speak through, he plays with color, technique, media and scale to engage his audience.
ABOUT MICHAL CRUZ FLORES:
Michel Cruz Flores is an up and coming studio artist who was born in Mexico City and raised in Los Angeles, California. Michel is passionate about painting, enthralled with everyday graffiti and street tags, and influenced by a range of classical pioneers like Michelangelo and Divinci to modern day artists such as Chaz Bojorquez and Graffiti writer El Mac. Whenever he paints he uses an open approach to each piece and mixes mediums such as acrylics, oils, inks, markers and aerosol. His style is a combination of abstract expressionism, in which he captures the subject by creating an emotional impact by bold use of colors. He has been drawing and sketching since he was 4 years old, inspired by an overactive imagination fueled by his fascination with comic books. Michel paints under the name Res, a childhood tag using the last 3 letters of his last name. He resides in Dallas, TX with his wife and son.
