Art and cocktails collide tonight August 9, 2o13 at Freehand Miami - the historic Indian Creek Hotel, one of Miami Beach's classic art deco buildings presents the work of Miami-based artist Yuri Tuma in The Drawing Room.
Their backyard-turned art gallery will feature Tuma's stunning photography, and to complement the evening Broken Shaker will be serving up their inventive spin on the classic dirty martini inspired by the style and tastes of Tuma himself. Tuma's art is considered 'applied photography' in the sense that he paints an abstraction through photographs.
His work is strongly influenced by geometry, symmetry and architecture that reflects a kaleidoscopic display of patterns, shapes and colors. Tuma's main practice is photography - he transforms his photographs into formulaic designs creating optical eye pieces unusual to the field of photography, but he is a versatile artist who also creates video art, sculpture, fashion and installation art. Join us this evening at Freehand Miami | 8pm - 2727 Indian Creek Drive - Miami Beach, FL 3314o.
