The Museum of Graffiti is proud to present Gustavo Oviedo: Symbiosis, on view from October 17 to November 14, 2020, curated by Museum of Graffiti Co-Founders Alan Ket and Allison Freidin. 

Over the past 15 years, Oviedo has developed a highly personal, self-taught style of art that explores the relationship between the bustle of Miami’s vibrant metropolitan streets and the tranquility of the Biscayne Bay’s aquatic life, currents, and marine dystopia. According to Oviedo, “By highlighting the beauty and mystique of South Florida’s waters, this exhibit is an opportunity to use my artwork to call attention to a serious issue—the health and preservation of the Biscayne Bay.”

The original artworks will be accompanied by a limited-edition print release ($131), an exclusive silkscreen long sleeve t-shirt ($60), and a hardcover book with a collection of Oviedo’s work and inspirations. This show will be presented in two adjacent gallery spaces inside the Museum of Graffiti and was made possible in part due to a grant provided by South Arts, a nonprofit regional arts organization who provide Oviedo with funds to purchase the supplies to create Symbiosis during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Museum of Graffiti will unveil the “first look” of Symbiosis at 11:00 AM on October 17, 2020. The artist will be safely greeting collectors, signing copies of his book and releasing his new print at 3:00 PM. Due to current regulations, timed ticketing will be strictly enforced, with only 6 tickets available every 15 minutes. Guests are encouraged to reserve tickets in advance online at museumofgraffiti.com due to limited availability. Oviedo will discuss the works during a talk at 7PM that will be broadcast live on the Museum’s Instagram page @museumofgraffiti.
