Felipe Galindo 

"New York Stories 

December 13 - December 27, 2015 

Opening Reception: Sunday Dec. 13 from 2-5pm

The Mark Miller gallery is pleased to present 

"New York Stories"

by renowned artist Felipe Galindo, a series of

works created on disposable objects and sketches

of New York City life, created during the past three decades.

Guided by the graphic qualities of throwaway materials

(milk cartons, shopping bags, Chinese food containers,

to name a few,) Galindo's work makes humorous commentaries

on everyday life and comments on today’s consumer society

while celebrating life in the artist’s adopted city.


Galindo’s work gives new life to the debris of our market economy

and creates unique works of art inspired by the beauty and complexity

of castaway objects.
