You are invited to an artist reception with Victor Bokas on July 12th from 6:30pm-9pm. The reception is located on the 3rd Tier in the furniture showroom. A great supporter of local emerging and established artists, Bloomingdale's provides an art gallery in this temporary setting that allows the viewer to conceptualize owning the artists' work and displaying it in their homes.

The event is free. Meet Victor Bokas, experience his art, and enjoy complimentary wine and lite bites.

Together, let's get "Bokaslicious at Bloomingdale's!"

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Victor Bokas grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida, against a backdrop of palm trees, tropical beaches and sunbathers. Those images, along with Florida kitsch, lush color palettes and complex patterns are frequently incorporated into his paintings. Victor also pays homage to his Greek heritage with statues, columns, olives and vases appearing in his work.

Since relocating to Orlando over three decades ago, he has been active in the local art community and beyond. Victor was awarded both the Orlando International Airport mosaic art project and the Winter Park Art Festival poster. Exhibitions include two solo shows at Maitland Art Center, a solo exhibition at Valencia College, the Orlando Museum of Art Juried Exhibition and many other gallery and museum exhibitions. His work appears in several Permanent Collections, including Mennello Museum of American Art, Orange County Convention Center, Tupperware, Darden, Maitland Art Center, Orlando City Hall, and Walt Disney Production.

A graduate of The University of Florida, Victor is also a seasoned graphic designer.

The artist is the opposite of the politically minded individual, the opposite of the reformer, the opposite of the idealist. The artist does not tinker with the universe, he recreates it out of his own experience and understanding of life. -Henry Miller

The "Bokaslicious at Bloomingdale's" exhibition will be on display until September 7, 2016.
