The famous singer’s collaboration with artist Federico Uribe is on exhibition at the Adelson Galleries until the end of the month!
A brand new exhibit has popped up in Wynwood Miamians! The singer Maluma recently collaborated on a special sustainable art collection with visual artist Federico Uribe and it’s one of the coolest installations ever!
Made only with recycled materials, the MALUMA x URIBE installation features over 100 mesmerizing works by Uribe including an incredible portrait of the singer made out of recycled plastic. Spanning over 18,000 square foot of exhibition space, this is Uribe’s largest exhibit to date.
The collaboration between Maluma and Uribe was born after they bonded over their shared personal experience and desire to protect our world. Uribe has become known in the art world for his mesmerizing, life-like sculptures made entirely of recycled materials, something that helped the singer immediately connects with his work.
“They have a shared desire to bring awareness to the discarded plastic and artificial materials scattered throughout the world’s landscapes and oceans and want to work together to contribute towards the solution,” explains Adelson Galleries, the exhibition’s host, on an Instagram post.
The exhibition features a predominantly coral reef theme that reflects on the artists’ shared urge to protect the environment and their travel experiences of seeing man-made trash polluting the seas.
Held at Palm Beach’s Adelson Galleries, the MALUMA x URIBE is an entirely free exhibition and charity auction. All works are currently up for sale including Maluma’s portrait, which will become the cover for the singer’s new album “#7DJ.” A portion of the proceeds will also be destined to non-profits based in Colombia including Fundación Amigos del Mar, Jardín Botánico de Cartagena, and Stand Up Providencia.
If you’d like to check out the awesome exhibit, all you got to do is book your free ticket through Adelson Galleries’ website. MALUMA x URIBE is on until Sunday, February 28, and opens Tuesday through Sunday from 12 to 7 p.m.
