"In the world of local art and culture, it’s always good news when an internationally-renowned mixed media artist opens a gallery.
Hence the smiles in Wynwood with the Fer Sucre Pop Gallery at 2609 N. Miami Ave. This space adds a fresh touch of color to the neighborhood.
Inside 950 square feet are vibrant and multicolored creations made by the Venezuelan neo pop artist, Fernando Sucre. His work is characterized by superheroes, musicians such as the Beatles and Rolling Stones and bar scenes featuring curvy women and sleep-deprived hunks.
What’s most authentic about Sucre’s works of art is that they’re everything except boring. His characters display happiness and overall good vibes and it’s immediately palpable when you enter the gallery. As of late, Sucre has been practicing yoga and that has been reflected in his work as characters from Indian mythology such as Ganesh and Shiva have started to pop up throughout his paintings.
“Perhaps there are people who don’t understand my art because it has a flair for the naughty, for humor and satire … but for me my works are like my children,” Sucre said. “Maybe today they’re not appreciated but in the future they might be.”
Paintings in different formats and sizes — square, rectangular and even round — line the white walls, while his collection of utilitarian art objects such as beach bags, wine bags, cups, huge cushions, aprons and skateboards line the shelves. And although there were no shoes on display during a recent visit, Fer Sucre’s distinctive designs are worn on the feet of many women.
“It’s a place where you can buy an original work of art signed by the artist for $25,” Sucre said in reference to the variety of utilitarian art objects, in addition to other pieces valued at thousands of dollars."
