Late last week, Miami native Alexander Mijares celebrated his first ever New York City exhibit at Hub Seventeen.  Mijares, known for his colorful and vibrant artwork, unveiled a new collection of black and white works titled “No Distractions,” that were inspired by his recent trip to New York where he went off the grid for three full days roaming the streets of the city that never sleeps. This new collection is a stark contrast from his signature color palette inspired by Miami and his Latin Roots.
