Coming to the Geometric MADI: Augmented Reality, the Mobile Tagging Art of Pedro Morales and the Sculptures of Miguel Prypchan

Opening April 27 at the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Uptown Dallas, a new show will introduce the city to the engaging works of two Venezuela-born artists, Pedro Morales and Miguel Prypchan.

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.

Miguel Prypchan’s sculptures interpret traditional landscapes under the eyes of abstractionism, light, angles, perspective, and constructivism. His work seeks to intervene, humanize and positively transform public spaces and the experience of everyday citizens.

Prypchan lives and works in Caracas, Venezuela. Pedro Morales lives and works in Houston and Versailles, France.

The show runs April 27-July 15. Both artists will be present at the opening.
