Alberto Mielgo Exhibition
Pinkman.tv and GR Works are pleased to present a solo exhibition of painter Alberto Mielgo’s latest works.
Spanish-born Alberto Mielgo takes us on a personal journey of the past 3 years of his life in painting. His approach to his pieces is by stumbling upon what he finds beautiful, fascinating and inspiring then honoring the subjects through his painting. The exhibition aims to celebrate Mielgo’s models and show them in an initimate portrait by highlighting details of their meetings and working process.
Alberto’s paintings feature an eroticism that shows a specific interest in discovering the innocence of the model, as well as the greater aspects of the subject and immediacy of the moment.
I think it’s fair to talk about them that people know how good they are. How much they mean to me, and why I decided to paint them, says Mielgo.
Born in Madrid, Alberto Mielgo successfully freelanced for several years in London before making the move to Los Angeles, where he currently is the Art Director for Disney's Tron Uprising. His paintings have been shown in Spain and London, and have been part of numerous international art fairs. During his study under master painter Antonio Lopez García in Albacete, Spain, Alberto won 1st prize for his painting, Lo que pasó. His latest creation pinkman.tv has been part of the Jakarta Biennale 2011.
Alberto was also the subject of Alexis Wanneroy's film, Innocent in a way, where the French filmaker portraits both Alberto Mielgo and porn artist Michelle Anne Sinclair 'Belladonna' during the creation of a piece.
Please join us for the opening on Monday November 5th, from 6-10 pm at GR Space at 114 W. 4th St. Read an article about the artist.
