The FIU College of Medicine Mammography Art Initiative, in collaboration with the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum, held a fund raising event on October the 11th. A selection of art pieces were auctioned off and the proceeds went towards a research fund benefiting breast cancer education and care in Miami. Click to see pictures from the event and a lineup of the well known artist who participated. My piece entitled "What's left of me", pastel on paper, 60"x42" was auctioned off to a head of industry and patron of the arts.

I won the Bombay Sapphire Miami trophy, competing against a flurry of talented artists from South Florida. As a result, I will be representing Miami at SCOPE this year, one of the world's most prestigious art fairs held during Basel Art Week, the most renowned and sought after art show, considered by artists and buyers alike as the Mecca of contemporary art. You will find my work showcased at Scope. Slated to win the national competition, I will have a solo exhibit at Scope NYC and my own mural in Wynwood in Miami, famous for its street art and arguably boasting the best murals of any city.

Comments About This Piece

"Useless, useless..." echoes around you, bouncing off the walls of your mind. Light, raspy, filled with wisdom but not without a tinge of sarcasm, Kali's fluttering chant reminds you of the impermanence of incarnation. Whatever you so cherish in this material world will dissolve, what power over others you think you have will vanish, leaving you stripped of all beliefs and ready for death. Fearful, you may hold onto life but Kali separates your head from your body with the Sword of Eternity. Dancing and swirling in the depths of your Second Chakra, you can feel the heat coming off her body as she holds your head by the hair. In the last moments, you strive to stare across her sensual body, archetype of all illusions, to focus your dying gaze on Svadhisthana, painted in blood on her left palm. Kali's face exemplifies delusional madness. On her full bosom rest the skulls of those trapped in Samsara. The male's head appears ghostly and Kali's figure is strongly contrasted against an ink-black background to give her an iconic appearance. The pitch black also alludes to the velvet void of the non-manifest, birth place of physical reality and eternal womb to the endless process of expansion, stasis, and contraction. A high level of detail and rendering is accomplished using the best quality charcoal and high grade watercolor paper by Arches. The paper offers ultra fine texturing and high fidelity in the rendition of skin, hair, and light. "Kali" is unmounted and will require a frame in order to hang.


Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
