Following a rainy South Florida week, Collector’s Night went off with hardly a drizzle. Indeed, a nice flow of folks stopped by the YoAmo305 gallery throughout the evening to catch a glimpse of Fordistas Pastel and Elian’s new show, Materia Prima.
The YoAmo305 gallery door fit right in with the pieces waiting inside. The Argentine artists re-painted the door by combining their signature styles — bold colors and shapes (Elian) and delicate and intricate line work (Pastel).
Take a look below at some snaps from the evening.

In Materia Prima (Raw Elements), Argentine-based artists Pastel and Elian explore the true meaning of collaboration by combining their individual aesthetics to tell a larger story.
In the exhibition, Pastel uses symbolism to explore the anthropological variations that have transformed the way humans live in modern societies. Pastel uses symbolic elements like the yucca plant (a basic Paraguayan crop) and arrows that serve as both a subtle reminder and perhaps warning of the consequences of wars and social problems.
Meanwhile, Elian tells another story: one in which the geometric properties of art and the use of black, white and empty space to give new meaning to the background of each piece. Using primary colors, Elian’s analysis of form prompts the viewer to think rather than feel.
We got a behind-the-scenes sneak peek as Pastel and Elian install their exhibition opening this Saturday, July 12th at 7pm at the YoAmo305 gallery in Wynwood.
If you can’t make it for Art Walk on Saturday, be sure to stop by during Collector’s Night this Thursday, July 10 for an intimate look at the exhibition:
