The Mood of Lost TimeHey, this was written about me, enjoy!
Kiki Valdes is a 26 year old painter who's figurative abstractions have attracted the likes of collectors, poets, ivy league college movement groups. Kiki has also created commissioned pieces at over 10 other institutions across the U.S. As Art News art critic and Author of "The End of the Art World" Robert C. Morgan puts it...." Kiki Valdes is a painter whose color captures the mood of lost time, the mythic moment that ascends to the surface, the love and the angst that seek solace within the subtle textures of his compositions." His friends are the ones that promote him best, with a long line of friends ranging from Carlos Slim to Columba Bush. His paintings had the chance in 2006 of being included in an important
Latino exhibit at the Florida State Capital, where Kiki Valdes managed to share the exhibition catalog with Latin American Masters Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Rufino Tamayo and Roberto Matta. Kiki will also be creating a commissioned piece in April at a private art reception by Telefonica for the IDB Collection at Miami's historic Freedom Tower Art Center.
