LIMITED EDITION PRINTS BY MIAMI NEO-POP ARTIST PETE KIRILL

Bomb Shelter Miami is proud to offer high-quality limited edition prints of Miami Neo-Pop Artist Pete Kirill. Kirill has made a name for himself for his street art murals in Wynwood. Vanilla Presley, Portrait of Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un and his Wynwood mural Missy Monroe are now available signed and numbered.

Pete Kirill’s practice originated from a series of neo-Pop portraits, anchored by the artificial persona and physical gestures of enigmatic, former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il. At present, Kirill’s work investigates the fractured relationships between conscience, consumerism and Capitalism: his satirical portraits fuse iconic film and music stars with equally important figures from the hip-hop world.

Pete Kirill’s work is currently available for purchase at Bomb Shelter. For inquiries please call 786.332.2759.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Pete Kirill’s practice originated from a series of neo-Pop portraits, anchored by the artificial persona and physical gestures of enigmatic, former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il. At present, Kirill’s work investigates the fractured relationships between conscience, consumerism and Capitalism: his satirical portraits fuse iconic film and music stars with equally important figures from the hip-hop world. Kirill’s work opens complex possibilities and associations from within and without the fabricated personas of these individuals (such as James Dean, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monore, Sophia Loren and Sean Connery), prompting his audience to reconsider their respective public legacies. They become stars all over again, a double-layer of celebrity varnish.

Pete Kirill was born in Mobile, Alabama in 1974. He received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (concentration in Fine Art and Design). Kirill collaborated with techno-timba music collective Sin Palabras (Havana) from 2000 to 2003. His first solo exhibition, A Communist Dictator Visits Miami, debuted at Myra Galleries Miami in October 2011. In February 2013 he completed MC Elvis, a full-scale mural in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District, receiving widespread coverage from The Miami Herald, CBS News Miami, FOX News Miami and Yareah Magazine. Kirill lives and works in Miami. He has since completed projects in Miami, Hollywood (Florida) and New York.
