About Our Auction
As a special expression of gratitude for Miami’s first responders to the COVID-19 pandemic, local artist Flavio Galvan, an Artist in Residence for Mandarin Oriental, Miami has donated four unique pieces to our restaurant La Mar by Gastón Acurio's gallery walls. The pop art honors the bravery and devotion of essential workers during the last several months. The pieces will be featured in this silent online auction from June 4 through July 6 with all proceeds donated to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
About the Artist:
Flavio Galvan is an independent artist who, for more than 28 years, has travelled the path of art nourishing himself with experiences generated in his travels, by his intense and varied relationships, including the difficulties of family life, university studies and workshops conducted by others. In his years of work in Argentina, his native country, he exhibited his work in museums and galleries, until he opened "Galvan Art Gallery" where he showed and sold his art until he immigrated to the United States where he currently resides.
Galvan submerges himself in the world of matter and forms, expressing with defined gestures, a strong color palette and his rich and multifaceted inner life. Each work is a journey through space, being carried away by a spell of energy as if surfing on a stormy sea. He manages obstacles and accidents and shapes them into a delicious visual symphony of colors.
