    About the Artists

    Flavio Galvan

    Flavio Galvan is an independent artist who, for more than 28 years, has traveled the path of art nourishing himself with experiences generated in his travels, by his intense and varied relationships, including the difficulties of family life, university studies and workshops conducted by others, but, fundamentally, in the experimenting and intense daily work of many years creating a significant body of paintings of great quality. In his years of work in Argentina, his native country, he exhibited his work in museums and galleries, until he opened "Galvan Art Gallery" where he showed and sold his art until he immigrated to the United States where he currently resides.

    Galvan submerges himself in the world of matter and forms, expressing with defined gestures, a strong color palette and his rich and multifaceted inner life. Each work is a journey through space, being carried away by a spell of energy as if surfing on a stormy sea. He manages obstacles and accidents and shapes them into a delicious visual symphony of colors.

    Christopher Florentino, known professionally as Flore, is an international American Contemporary Fine artist born in Brooklyn, New York. His work ranges from contemporary art pieces to mid-century modern inspired interior design. Having exhibited all over the world, Flore began 2018 with the debut of his first solo show in Los Angeles ' A Perpetual Compulsive Repetition of Words'. Through this exhibition, Flore invited collectors on a voyeuristic journey into his head space over the past year. Intentionally choosing words that leave room for multiple interpretations, Flore creates space for his viewers to develop their own narratives alongside evoking introspective emotive moments.

    ‘Something Modern’ is Flore’s most recent body of work inspired by the artists love of mid century modern design and a deconstruction of the artists urban cubism series.The series expresses pure thought in gesture and color and texture opposed to the words, faces and structure of the urban series. It is a freedom influenced heavy by De Kooning, CY Twombly & Jean Michael Basquiat.
