This new series of works on paper, acrylic on canvas and ceramic objects was created by the artist specifically to benefit Creative Capital. Mondini-Ruiz will be present at the Creative Capital booth offering a glimpse into his kinetic and multidisciplinary art-making process. Roberta Smith of The New York Times has noted that his work “questions notions of preciousness and art-market exclusivity while delivering a fizzy visual pleasure.” More information may be found at http://auction.creative-capital.org/artists/franco-mondini-ruiz.
