New World School of the Arts Logo Mystery

Posted 2012-04-25 22:24:13 | Views: 9,398

Something To Think About

 

The logo on the left is of the high school I went to in Miami, New World School of the Arts. The other day I was looking at my old dusty year book (class of 2000) and I saw something I never really noticed before. Is it me or does the school logo look almost exactly like the design from Clockwork Orange?  Is this a coincidence? Considering that the school is made up of creatives I find it very likely that Clockwork helped out/inspired the designer with the final school logo. Badass. 

 

Clockwork in the New World Order. 

Yes.

No. 

Maybe?

A Note: 

Hey everyone, 

My good friend Matt Sherman opened up this great organic juice spot called JugoFresh. It's amazing. As a matter of fact, I use to help Matt make juice in his south beach apartment when he was first starting out!! 

They are having a launch private party on Friday, April 20th. 
Matt and the gang have invited me and are flying me down to live action paint for the launch! I hope I can see you and you can discover what JugoFresh is all about. These guys and girls make amazing juice. I'm very proud of them and I think you will be too. 

I hope you can make it! Please RSVP

Face-Time (2012)

"Face-Time" 

Oil on canvas (2012) 

I've been doing cartoon based drawings with india ink for the past year. This is my first attempt at this new form of painting for me. It's a mixture of expressionism and cartoon imagery from my childhood. I stopped painting women in the traditional sense and started using something more playful and nostalgic to pull new viewers into some of the same type of issues and themes I’ve been experimenting with for the past 5 years.

"Erasing Boogie" 

Kiki Valdes - Oil, acyrlic on canvas. 

I found this photo of this painting I did a few years ago. It was a painting I was working on then I started layering it with older paintings and ideas I never finished, basically in some ways I resolved this painting with previous ideas from other works and studies.

I love this guy. He pretty much captures

really important phases of my artistic development. Check out his work.

This was taken at our show THE OUTSIDERS.

Kiki Valdes Confronted by Stephen Marley

 "A Little Bird Told Me" 2012

Painted this at a benefit for Pincrest Gardens with private concert by Stephen Marley. Mr. Marley confronted me about the painting wanting to know what it means. He put me on the spot in a way that made me speechless. I was not expecting a musician to question my actions as a painter. But then again he’s a Marley….a legend.
