MIAMI, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Making its national debut in the US, artist Kai Guetta will unveil a collection of work featuring urban musical "royalty." Coinciding with Miami's Winter Music Conference, Kai's exhibit, "Now Royalty," is a series of 27 original oil-on-canvas pieces featuring a diversity of urban music super stars donning classic royal attire.
Framed in antique gold, period style frames, the oversized pieces are near life-size for the subjects they portray. Jay Z & Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Kanye West, Diddy, Eminem, Drake, and more are depicted in a way that represents the grandeur in which the public holds them today.
The 'Now Royalty' collection quickly made European headlines when it was shown via a true rogue street art display. Reprints of the pieces were mounted to large boxed frames that were placed over advertisements in the subway station at the famed Louvre-Rivoli Museum in France.
"The 'Now Royalty' collection has brought my art into a new light," said Guetta. "It's going to be interesting to see what happens in the States where the musical geniuses in Row Royalty are revered by fans. I hope it will open some creative doors for me, which will allow me to get back in the studio and create more work. Whatever comes of it, I'll be thankful for."
The unveiling will take place at one of Wynwood's newest galleries, the LULU Labortarium, at a special reception on March 27th at 7pm. Curated by visionary Elie Akiba, who has partnered with Amsterdam's Urban Art House, LULU Labortarium is a collaboration of artists and designers who share a commitment to true self-expression.
The 10,000+ sq. ft. venue delivers a powerful explosion of playful wonder. Meshing bold contemporary style with a youthful vigor, the gallery takes on electro-eclectic elements for a fun fresh look that draws from fashion and art. Though the gallery will be dedicated solely to Kai's work for the next few weeks, The LULU Labortarium quickly set itself apart from other galleries by the diverse and whimsical collection it shows, as well as a variety of retail items that range from limited edition bicycles, Marshall musical amps and apparel.
