The exhibit features large portraits of celebrities and historical figures like Einstein, Gandhi, Churchill, Clint Eastwood, Frida Kahlo, and Miles Davis, who get their mugs worked over in a colorful slashing style Pacheco dubs "cubist expressionism." He says the influence of the Mexican muralists and Depression-era painters can be seen in other works such as the painting commissioned by his friend, Latin spice impresario, Pepe Badia, who sponsored the show. The festive confection depicting salsa dancers, Pepe Badia holding a spoon, and Ferdie, his wife Luisita and their daughter, Tina, waving from Pacheco's 1947 Caddy, will soon be blown up to the size of a boxing ring to grace the rooftop at Badia's corporate headquarters. Located near the end of a Miami International Airport runway, Badia's unusual contribution to public art will provide the first taste of our city for millions each year. Unlike other celebrities who've dabbled in art -- Tony Bennet, Joni Mitchell, Anthony Quinn, and Bob Guccione -- the indefatigable Ferdie hits the eye hard and may yet paint his way into history.
