Spend a great day previewing the hottest new artists on the scene in New York. The New Yorker has a long history of supporting Artists before they become household names. Passport to the Arts on Saturday November 7th is like a cliff notes version of Gallery life in Chelsea New York. You might not find out everything you need to know about extremely talented artists - but you can see an example of their work and meet with many of the artist as they preview their latest work.
One talented artist participating is Pato Paez of IMURI International. Pato has made a name for himself creating one of a kind murals for commercial and private spaces for those in the know. His sense of color and proportion are what have kept his fans coming back, and making then want to live with his murals.
Pato is also a talented portrait artist. His sense of abstraction and again -use of color lead to the creation of dreamy portraits that have an upbeat and creative feel - somehow melancholy and joyous at the same time.
One well known fan of Paez is actress Selma Blair. Paez painted the actress in his signature style - flies & dragonflies are common symbols in his work. The beautiful painting is on display at the MaxMara btq. on Madison Avenue at 68th Street in NYC. If you visit MaxMara - check out one the amazing cashmere coats on display. This global fashion house excells in coat design. It was a camel coat that founder Achille Maramotti sold out of the trunk of his car that started the collection.
