Myra Galleries has been dedicated to presenting the work of top international pop artists since emerging in the Wynwood Arts District in February 2011. Now it continues to do so with a curated exhibition of 20 acrylic on canvas pieces by Korean artist Lee Ik-Ryeol, each pertaining to the wild and heart-stopping world of professional car racing.
“I wanted to express the symbolism and beauty in sports driving,” says Ik-Ryeol of his gracefully configured artwork. Detailing the minute aspects of racecars and the people intimately acquainted with them – including three pieces depicting Emerson Fittipaldi, a personal favorite of the artist – Ik-Ryeol reveals the racecar as a unique personal space directly tied to the visions and dreams of those who admire and work with them. This series of paintings focuses on F1, Indy 500 and Nascar racing and marks Ik-Ryeol’s first exhibition in Miami.
