FLORE 2018 PRESS KIT

Christopher Florentino, known professionally as Flore, is an international American Contemporary Fine artist born in Brooklyn, New York. Flore embodies 'the spirit of Keith Haring' and is closely influenced by artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat and George Condo. His work ranges from contemporary art pieces to mid-century modern inspired interior design.

Having exhibited all over the world, Flore began 2018 with the debut of his first solo show in Los Angeles ' A Perpetual Compulsive Repetition of Words'. Through this exhibition, Flore invited collectors on a voyeuristic journey into his headspace over the past year.

Intentionally choosing words that leave room for multiple interpretations, Flore creates space for his viewers to develop their own narratives alongside evoking introspective emotive moments. While exploring those motifs, he platforms his deep influence from the late Keith Haring through graphic and text-heavy pieces that interpret the myriad experiences and nuances of the world. The show will further delve into his artistry while in tandem deconstructing the way we grow up in America — a concept birthed from being creatively triggered by music, conversation and philosopher Alan Watts.

INSTALLATIONS

SOMETHING MODERN

My favorite era of painting since I was a little boy was abstract expressionism, I have been collecting mid century modern furniture for the last 11 years and I am in love with the lines of the period. I find everything from the mid century era to be very appealing. I am inspired by the greats: Dekooning and Jackson Pollock. Truly anything cubist or modern. I have fleshed out the value of my brush stroke thru painting in my urban Cubism style of painting and my something modern series is the type of paintings I am most attracted to. I love the idea of simplifying a painting down to color and gesture, hard lines and emotion I feel it challenges me and allows for maximum freedom while painting.
