The King of Cuban Pop Art
Tony Mendoza

October 6- 25, 2012

In a Solo Exhibit Titled: "Lost in Translation: A unique look at what is said…"

In Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month Rodez Art Gallery presents a Solo Exhibit of Tony Mendoza's Idioms Series.

Tony is known for his whimsical and colorful work celebrating life in Miami's Little Havana. In this series, he has applied his distinctive vision to literally portraying the imagery of common Spanish and English language idioms. Discovering in the process that what is said in everyday conversations can inspire truly humorous, compelling and surrealistic illustrations.

In his colorful work Tony pokes fun at life. He sees humor in all things, thus compelling the viewer of his artwork to take matters-at-hand a little less seriously. His creations have the ability of making people forget their headlong race against time, obliging them to stop, observe, smile and yes, to even laugh out loud.

The vernissage will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2012
during Coconut Grove Gallery Walk from 7 to 10 p.m.

Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Friday & Saturday, Noon to 10:00 p.m.
