Meet the Artist- MAGO

November 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Do not miss this amazing opportunity to meet one of the featured artists in SOMOS/WE ARE: Latinx Artists of Long Island: MAGO! Mago will be speaking with Museum guests on Saturday, November 18 from 2 pm to 4 pm in the LIM Art Museum. Learn more about his creative process and the influence their heritage has on his art.

Born in NYC to Colombian immigrant parents, MAGO used his Latinx heritage and urban education to develop his signature style: transavantgarde graffiti-expressionism, characterized by cross-cultural themes and bold techniques. MAGO’s works are created right out of the paint tube with rapid rhythmic lines, taking influence from street and indigenous tribal art.

This event is free with Museum admission. No registration required.
