Miami New Times // Folkloric Acid Best Second Saturday Show

Thanks, Miami New Times, for naming Folkloric Acid one of the best shows for October 11th’s Second Saturday art walk in Miami! Come see the work of Einar and Jamex de la Torre in Wynwood from 6-9pm:

“The work of Einar and Jamex, AKA the de la Torre Brothers who hail from Guadalajara, Mexico and are based in California, teeters from the sublime to the mind blowing and is freighted with ironic and side-splitting iconography. The infamous siblings typically hijack pre-Hispanic and Catholic motifs in their surreal assemblages to great effect and are presenting a garishly colorful collection of glass sculptures, lenticular prints and Led lightboxes at the Mindy Solomon Gallery that are among some of the more original and attention-grabbing works you’ll discover in Wynwood this weekend.”
