Art & History Museums – Maitland
This fall, be immersed in the vibrant imagination of celebrated Central Florida artist Victor Bokas as the Art and History Museums of Maitland presents Victor Bokas: A Bold & Colorful Journey at the Maitland Art Center galleries. Having grown up in the Florida panhandle, Bokas’ work evokes the beauty of the Gulf Coast’s natural environment with playfulness and whimsy, combining the region’s iconic tropical landscapes with familiar Floridian kitsch. Into this mix he frequently uses imagery inspired by his vintage flea market collection as well as his Greek heritage, often incorporating classical sculptures and columns into his paintings and collages.
The exhibition will debut an exciting selection of Bokas’ newest paintings and mixed-media works created over the last two years. Featured will be more than 30 colorful palm tree variations, 60 collages celebrating Bokas’ 60th birthday, bird cages decorated with flowers, and a series of large collages.
