Hanging drawings by Juan Carlos Vasquez Lima in the collector’s home
It’s always a pleasure when we work with the team from Frames and Stretchers. This time we installed and delivered two terrific works by young Cuban artist Juan Carlos Vazquez Lima who’s represented by Bryant Toth Fine Art here in New York City. The frames were a collaborative effort using custom molding from Quattro Frameworks. Quattro’s skilled artisans combine traditional craftsmanship with stylish contemporary profiles and designs. Frames and Stretchers specified a closed corner maple molding with black rub finish accented with 22K gold leaf which is applied over clay for a rich, finely crafted result. The custom framing job was completed using high quality museum board and anti-reflective museum glass. The artwork was then delivered and installed in the happy collector’s home.
Juan Carlos Vazquez Lima is among the many outstanding Cuban artists that Bryant Toth has brought to an American audience. Vazquez Lima was born in Havana Cuba into a family of artists. He is a graduate of the Eduardo Garcia Delgado School of Art Instructors in Havana, with a concentration in Fine Art. At only 29 years of age his talent, skill and artistic sensibility are highly sophisticated and they have earned him a number of exhibitions including an international show at Galeria Cubana, in Boston Massachusetts and group exhibitions in New York City and Nashville, Tennessee. Vazquez Lima’s drawings stand out for his clever depictions of figurative characters and animals, mechanically jointed with spindly arms and legs. He attributes his inspiration to the comical & whimsical relationships between and antics of his neighbors in Central Havana.
Whimsical characters from the imagination of Juan Carlos Vasquez Lima
We really value our professional relationships here at Art Delivery Van and this project was a true collaborative effort. We enjoy a continuing stream of exceptional art work from Frames and Stretchers and these works from Bryant Toth were a perfect match paired with Quattro’s gorgeous frame molding.
