MIAMI, FL- Oct 30, 2014 – A different way to experiment painting, sound and violence is about to take place at The Chill Concept on October 30th at 8:00 pm. Venezuelan artist Muu Blanco will present “Abstract Violence”, a multimedia installation of digital images and sounds.

Blanco searched for pictures of violence in sports events and transformed them into beautiful “digital paintings”.His exhibition consists of videos he produced with these fragmented and abstract images. Dynamic sounds of the artwork were also recorded from people’s behavior during sporting events. This is a total environment that surrounds the viewer in images and sounds to inspire thoughts about violence.

The visual and aural contradictory experience serves to reinforce an unsettling atmosphere. In his own words, Blanco explains his purpose: “My approach to this work was to transform these images into digital, abstract, and organic paints”.

MUU BLANCO was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1966. He is one of Venezuela’s leading multimedia artists today. He has produced artworks combining various media: drawing, photography, assembly, videos and music. In the last decade he has focused more on video installations, audio environments and electronic music performances.

Blanco uses urban videos and sounds to create unexpected experiences. His works have been shown in museums and galleries in Canada, Europe, Latin America, and United States; and are found in private collections. Recently, he was part of the travelling exhibit “Futebol o Jogo Só Acaba Quando Termina” of the Goethe-Institut/ICBA, which showed in Sao Paulo, Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Lima, Córdoba, Bogotá, Caracas, Santiago de Chile and Quito.

Key solo recent exhibitions include “Inthahouse” at Carmen Araujo Arte Gallery (Caracas, Venezuela, 2013), “Caja Blanca Atrapa Moscas” at the Sicart Gallery (Barcelona,Spain, 2012) and “Entorno” at Cubo 7 Gallery (Caracas, Venezuela, 2012)
