The Retro Kitsch and Kulture Show at The Box Gallery Celebrates 4 Exceptional Artists

Spotlight on Carlos Alves who kick-started his post-college career in the 1980s with a free flowing ceramic tile installation located on the floor and walls of the Art Center South Florida. The project eventually led to commissions by a number of public and private clients in the US, and from London, to Hong Kong. Alves’ use of custom handmade ceramic blue bananas mingled with souvenir ceramics of flamingos, Florida gators, art-deco memorabilia, and vintage Fiestaware transform kitschy objects of the South Florida’s Weeki Wachee days into grand installations at the private homes of the rich and famous and fine art collectors worldwide.
