Dont let the psychedelic colors fool you Joey Mugica (also known as the Color Queen) is not another Miami loon trying to force-feed his quirky art to the masses. His antics (not his art, but his Target Therapy excursions; YouTube it) landed him on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and his personalized creations have earned him a Facebook following that your tween sister would omg d-i-e to have. This Fridays show is an extension of Coral Gables gallery night and of the digital designs Mugica is known for. I have created an online digital salon where my friends send in their photos and I re-create them into works of art using several mediums, he explains. The idea behind my art form is one of personal rebirth, giving an old photograph a new renaissance, purpose, and new life in vivid colors. From 7 p.m. to midnight, hell turn Victorias Designs into a photo studio, capturing flicks and giving you the Color Queen treatment. RSVP is required to the phone number above.
