Gabriel Gimenez aka GGhas become a recognizable face in the Miami art scene. His art has made its way into many collector homes via his representation at Nac Gallery in Fort Lauderdale and his murals grace many walls such as O Cinema in Wynwood. GG’s main character, Fedo, stares at patrons in many bars with his signature disproportioned black eyes and wacky mouth.
The Fedo stickers have made their way around the world and the face can be seen in cities like New York, London and San Juan. Fedo has taken on many forms recently and for his latest solo exhibit GG used the character to paint a series favorite icons and characters from Andy Warhol to Mickey Mouse.
A collaboration with Del Toro shoes has pushed GG to a new level of recognition past the borders of the art world so I sat down with the artist to find out what he has been up to.
