Artist Flavio Galvan’s “Interstellar Collection” opens Saturday, July 6 from 3-7 pm during Ormond’s Art Walk, with the artist present to personally share with guests from 4-7 p.m.

Flavio Galvan, formerly from Argentina where he received both a bachelor of fine arts and a bachelor of graphics arts, emigrated to the United States, became a U.S. citizen and settled in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For over 30 years, he has explored and mastered his unique approach to contemporary painting. His artwork is now known by collectors far and wide, throughout Florida and west to Los Angeles Tokyo and Dubai.

The artist statement about the Interstellar Collection says volumes about his art. 

“The work is an exploration of new techniques, materials, methods and unexpected outcomes," the statement reads. "As a mid-career artist of more than 30 years, it’s gratifying to experiment and allow time-tested techniques to push the boundaries. This series includes work with varnish, oil, ink, resin, acrylic, and fire. Each image has between 20 and 30 layers  of materials. They have a sort of internal depth and are luminously captivating.” 

"Having Flavio Galvan’s art in the gallery further expands our outreach to the top local, national and international artists who bring Ormond Beach the best of the best for everyone to enjoy," said Frank Gromling, owner-director of Ocean Art Gallery. “This has been our mission for over 12 years and will remain so as we progress forward into new and exciting art endeavors.”

Ocean Art Gallery, located at 197 E. Granada Blvd., represents 20 contemporary artists, most of whom are major award-winners throughout Florida and the country. Mediums represented include oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, photography and sterling silver and gold jewelry. The 3,000-square-foot gallery, located in Granada Plaza at the intersection of Granada Boulevard and SR A1A, contains a wide variety of artwork featuring coastal Florida, breathtaking abstract, expressionism and so much more.
