Special thanks to Lisa Marie Projects
When you witness greatness you are grateful for the experience and the elements that surround that moment. I am certainly grateful for the invite to the VIP Premier of “The Herbert Galarza Experience (Solo Exhibition + Pop-Up Shop). His collections were insane.
Last night Galarza packed some of Miami’s most notable impresarios, art mavens and fashionista’s into OTL in Miami Design District. The theme of his first solo exhibition was inspired by his love for the 80’s and Miami Culture. The interior design and iconic Scarface mural set the tone. It was dope to see a boobtube TV and Star Wars Action Figures.
His art is very astonishing but the most impressive part of the evening was his pop up. I got there early so I was able to see the whole collection. Crazy Jimmy Hendrix Jean Jackets, Vintage Playboy T-shirts, and more filled his display racks. I thought to myself, “on the low, this could be a serious new clothing line”. Within minutes, the racks were emptied. Tag’s were being popped left and right.
Pay close attention to the continuing maturation of Herbert Galarza. His art and influence emulate similar journeys of the greats. See a few images from the epic evening below.
