November 29, 6 pm – 9 pm: Artist Reception and Live Painting from Emerging Artist Mayra Mateus
*Open to the public on MiamiCentral’s Mezzanine Level*
- Mayra Mateus: MiamiCentral will be home to a large-scale sculpture from emerging pop artist superstar Mayra Mateus’s Piggy Bank collection. Making her first debut at Art Basel this year, Mateus has gained fame with her piggy banks and colorful designs on canvas, sculptures and cartoons. She combines emblematic pop culture characters with daring scenarios that express the rebellion and freedom in today’s society. This collection represents her vision of “saving dreams” as a reminder that pursuing dreams is more important than pursuing money.
