TOOFLY “LOVE WARRIOR” ART PRINT EXHIBITION at My Plastic Heart / New York City
OPENING 6/24 from 6-10PM

New York City, New York — World renowned street artist, designer, and social entrepreneur, Maria “TOOFLY” Castillo brings together the complete “LOVE WARRIOR” ART PRINT series to New York City’s My Plastic Heart Gallery on Friday, June 24th, 2016. An anticipated exhibition in the heart of downtown’s Lower East Side. Held from 6PM to 10PM, arts enthusiasts, tastemakers, press and friends will get to view the series that inspired a completely new direction for TOOFLY. Admiring a palpable presence of feminine power immersed in the rising spiritual.

The exhibition will run for one week June 24th – July 1st.

LOVE WARRIOR is Toofly’s new series of work deeply rooted in merging both her Ecuadorian heritage and upbringing on the streets of New York City. The series boasts images of strong, sensual, indigenous womxn, adorned with warrior markings to portray the deep reserves of strength inherited from ancestral experiences.

Throughout TOOFLY’s travels to North and South America, she used her sketches, illustrations, and street works to capture a myriad of perspectives around womxn’s attitudes, feminism, and spirituality.

The “around the way girl” has matured; she’s tapped into contemporary messages about going “back to your roots” in order emerge as a “Free Spirit,” “Native Soul,” and “Freedom Dreamer” – which also happens to be the names of a few limited edition prints on display. Works are celebrated via different mediums: paper, apparel works, and rich photography of TOOFLY’s colorful aerosol murals throughout Latin America. Each of her pieces serve as an inspiration to travel, love, create, and experience the freedom of letting go from all that holds us back.

The Studio Miners’ fifth annual exhibit, Studio Gold, opening at myplasticheart on April 16, 2016 features work by over 25 artists from across the country and overseas. The exhibit hearkens back to the roots of the curating duo’s mission – to document the wonderfully exciting world of artists, collectors and creatives of all kinds. For this exhibit, artists were free to create any work, as opposed to following a theme as in previous years, as long as the artwork embodies a 12″ x 12″ space.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a zine of the same name will be released in a limited run at the opening. The zine will give a glimpse at the spaces, collections, and objects artists surround themselves with, offering a look into the every day inspiration and processes of the participating artists.

Featuring the artwork of :

Angry Woebots, Chris Austin, Maret Bondorew, Betso, Brian Butler, Bwana Spoons, Dave the Chimp, Chris RWK, Chula, Mathew Curran, Evoker, Flying Fortress, Ekiem, Kev Grey, Mike Guerrero, Michael C. Hsiung, Aya Kakeda, KaNo, Peter Kato, PhiIip Lumbang, MCA, OBLVN, Podgy Panda, Lou Pimentel, Clams Rockefeller, Smut Villain, Tougui, Mr. Walters
