Leonard Tourné Gallery and Spoon invite you to the opening reception of BRIT by Colombian artist Vianey Vacca, with music by Sheik ‘n’ Beik the Low Pitch Orchestra.
Just in time for the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympic Games, BRIT is a series of twelve paintings dedicated to British culture—from music to the Monarchy. The exhibition at Leonard Tourné Gallery will run from June 14 to July 5 before moving to London.
Currently based in New York, Vacca is the creator of “COOL ART,” a movement described by the artist as a new language in art history that combines pop art and modern contemporary art.
Vacca has collaborated with designer Mario Hernandez to create VIANEY, a line of handbags and leather goods. His work, entitled “Liberty,” was chosen to be featured on a postcard commemorating the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York.
Since 2004, Vacca’s paintings have been exhibited widely in New York, Florida, and Colombia.
