So the cat is out of the bag... I just got the notification that I'm included in the #aquaartmiami preview exhibit this Thurs July 19 at the Rogers Kiene Building (formerly the Gallery at Avalon Island) in Orlando FL. I am ELATED!
Four of the 20 artists participating in this preview exhibit will be selected and included in this year's AQUA Art Miami fair during #ArtBasel in #MiamiBeach . I'm humbled and honored to be among these 20 hugely talented artists participating in this preview exhibit.
Please check this show out if you are in or around Orlando between July 19 through August 11 @thegalleryatavalonisland , 39 S. Magnolia Avenue, Orlando FL.
Huge congrats to my fellow Preview Exhibit Participants:
Aqua Art Miami, which will kick off with a VIP Preview on Wednesday, December 5 and open to the public December 6 - 9, has become the premier destination for prominent collectors and art aficionados to procure works by young, emerging and mid-career artists. Throughout the years, Aqua Art Miami has continued to solidify itself as a completely unique art fair, consistently staying true to its signature relaxed yet energetic vibe. The 2017 edition featured 52 international exhibitors showcasing fresh new works, and set in the intimate exhibition rooms that open into a beautiful courtyard, all found within the classic South Beach hotel.

▪️ Love is no game, 2016
An interactive human-scale “tongue slide” delves again into themes of playfulness, desire and pleasure. With our tongue we taste the world, we lick, we swallow, we communicate. An intensively active sexual participant, the tongue is here instead intended to be used as a slide. We are faced yet again with the fun but uncomfortable confrontation of our own thoughts regarding imagination and sex. Despujols hereby connects this conscious- unconscious poetic stream of thought in a ludic and powerful way.
Sometimes it's easier to get shots in one of these, a seaplane. It flies a little slower and lower than a helicopter. Plus it takes off and lands on the water, which is a magical experience. .
I'll be working on some #miami pieces from this recent flight hopefully for exhibitions next year. .

This @fragmentation collage is currently making way to our room @artmiamifairs #aquaartmiami ! If you miss your chance to see it in person next week, then you’ll have to wait until May when it appears in the movie Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

On 9/20/2016, my first pointillism piece "Reign" was born and I began pioneering a new pointillism technique. Since then, I have:
- Traveled to Pennsylvania (including #pittsburgh#philadelphia#westmoreland and #beavercounty )
- Traveled to Virginia (#richmond#alexandria#arlington#newportnews and #virginiabeach ) - Traveled to Maryland (#rockville )
- Traveled to Michigan (#annarbor )
- Traveled to Florida (#stpetersburg#miamiartweek )
- Traveled to #washingtondc
I have also:
- Sold over approximately 300 #bittybites
- Sold over approximately 125 original works that are 16x20 inches or smaller
- Sold over approximately 75 original works that are 18x24 inches or larger
- Sold over approximately 500 wallet friendly prints (only available at my live shows)
I have been interviewed four times and my art has been featured in various publications.
Finally, I started working with my first gallery @crossroadsartcenter and am in discussions with a few other opportunities (I'm really protective of my work). This could not have been possible without all of you who have supported and fueled me, financially, emotionally, spiritually. More to come in 2018 with you by my side. Thank you, thank you. #thebestisyettobe
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference. Experiences and conjecture can turn beautiful things into disaster. Love doesn't hurt, losing it does, loneliness does, rejection does, losing a loved one does, envy does...for being amongst ones that truly love you, cures all. Be with those that truly love you everyday, and may that always remind us of the true beauty and power this word holds. To the one I spend my intimate moments with, thank you. Happy Valentines Day #miami#artbasel#aquaartmiami#love#family#friends#loveyourselffirst
Dreaming of lazy days, taking my time getting ready in the morning, less clothing, waking up to warm spring sunshine and birds chirping. I loved this piece @aquaartmiami , artist Orit Fuchs from Tel Aviv. She portrays women in such a beautiful, simple, sexy way. @orit_fuchs #womenartistsrock#currentmood ...
