Miami Artist Magnus Sodamin is obsessed with size. Large canvases, broad brushstrokes, sides of walls, Sodamin's chaotic aesthetic is barely contained by the large surfaces on which he paints. There's nothing too big for Sodamin, in 2014 the artist wrapped an entire roller coaster.
Sodamin debuted his first solo show at Primary Projects in early 2014 to rave reviews. He capped it off by painting his first mural during Art Basel last month.The New Times caught up with him at his studio on the grounds of the Deering Estate, where he is currently in residence. The historic mansion and several smaller cottages, is on one of the only protected natural preserves in the county. The idyllic setting is the perfect contrast for Sodamin's work, dazzling worlds of cosmic chaos ripped from immediate surroundings.
