Barcelona-based artist, Emilio Garcia of lapolab just released a sneak peek at his latest creation, the Skull Brain. You may know Emilio for his now famous and prolific Jumping Brains series. Available in almost any color imaginable these whimsical brains have received worldwide coverage, appearances in gallery shows (including our 2010 Street Anatomy show), and collaborations with many big artists.
The Skull Brain, done in different colors and materials, will be showcased at the Art Miami, CONTEXT pavilion at Black Square Gallery. CONTEXT, Miami’s newest cutting-edge, contemporary art fair, will launch with a VIP Private Preview on Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2012, coinciding with the 23rd edition of Art Miami.
I love Emilio’s story because he wanted to do something outside of the digital realm. He created lapolab, a space for himself to do visual art and plastic experimentation. Spurred on by the success of the first Jumping Brain project, he’s gone on to do many other projects and the Skull Brain is just his latest big iteration. Looking forward to seeing where this one goes!
Also look out for a collaboration between Emilio and Street Anatomy in the future!
