So, for me the duality really starts with the double cultures of the Cuban/Spanish and the American/Native. Then I started thinking of cosmopolitan life and rural life. High art and low art. Conservative art and Progressive art. Abstraction versus figuration. I started thinking of Thomas Hart Benton and his relationship with Jackson Pollock. How they were both making American art at the same period…but from two very different perspectives. I thought of Picasso and bullfights and how that is a very Spanish and Mexican thing. I wanted to find a very American thing that I love…and I thought the rodeo was something very important to American history.

13MV Indiegogo Campaign Featured Artists Kiki Vades invited to paint for Herradura’s Art Project

“The barrel and the art are united as one without compromising each other. There is a long history of how the tequila is made, there is a history to my life and how I make my work. This is truly what my art barrel is about. I wanted to show enjoyment and togetherness with the abstract figures and colors, just as Herradura and I are coming together with support and friendship. ” Artist Statement by Kiki Valdes. His work is being displayed tomorrow in a private event at the Loews Hotel. Read more.
