ARTE FUSE: (M) Artist Andrew Galindo talking to some guests including Bill Jacklin (R) about his new work in the show.
Standing out among the two-dimensional inclusions are figurative artists Andrew Galindo and Jack Rosenberg. Galindo’s moody mixed media portraits, on paper handmade by the artist, are intimate, touching character studies suggestive of the psychological understanding of history’s great portraitists. Rosenberg’s expressionistic, almost Cubist-inspired paintings depicting figures ranging from Queen Elizabeth II to an “Old Man,” provide multi-faceted, painterly looks at each subject. Cuban painter Franklin Alvarez Fortun also makes an impact with his subtly political works from the Suspense series, depicting typically Cuban figures frozen in mid-air, unable to make a move.

PRESS RELEASE: NEW YORK Artist ANDREW GALINDO Receives International Recognition
Artist ANDREW GALINDO of KEW GARDENS, NEW YORK has received a Special Recognition Award in the "18th Annual Faces Juried Online International Art Exhibition" hosted by Upstream People Gallery, Omaha, Nebraska, U. S. A..
This international exhibition received approximately 100 art entries from around the world and 15 artists were selected by the juror Laurence Bradshaw, Professor Emeritus of Art & Art History at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, U. S. A.
Professor Bradshaw states this about this specially recognized work:
"ANDREW GALINDO of Kew Gardens, New York uses powered graphite, pure paint pigment, pencil and other mixed media to enrich his portraiture. Perhaps the one that draws the viewer in the most is "Looking Inside Out" wherein one is deep in contemplation.”’ ~Upstream People Gallery
"The piece in the series called, "Looking Inside Out," was intended to evoke how a person needs to examine oneself in order to find out truths that can't be revealed by looking outward, but looking inward at our own unique journey in life. Then you can perceive, and understand the seen and tangible world much more clearly by understanding yourself in this world.” ~Galindo
