Pop artist, @Catlin has been taking over the Miami art scene by storm. This past weekend, I had the chance to meet and speak with Catlin, as he showed me and other art-enthusiastic guests his studio space in Wynwood, which is filled with murals, canvases and wood: all painted by him. The building has his most noted work up to date, which is a Pulp Fiction theme, where Catlin spray painted the whole front of the structure with characters from the film: with a modern twist. It’s all in the details with adding Louboutin heels to Uma Thurman’s portrait and splashes of color to the rest of the Pulp Fiction series to go with his acrylic paintings, which you could swear were made of oil paint because of the level of craftsmanship. His work is constantly being featured on buildings in Wynwood and various exhibitions along with spreading on social media and the blogosphere.  What seperates Catlin from the rest, is that his work is all about what people like and then modernizing it in a way that is super classic but fresh looking.

The contemporary art world is vibrant and booming like never before and it’s a twenty-first-century phenomenon, a global industry in its own right. Contemporary artists seek the power to astonish, satisfy and challenge: Catlin’s artwork achieves all of these things. He showcases art that the public may not ordinarily have access to outside of a large urban environment within a welcoming, creative, and inspirational platform. He is a true artist of not only painting but of innovation, lifestyle and artistic interpretation. As time goes on, he will continue to on his journey of creating original and captivating art and delve deeper into the world of art by utilizing a wide range of mediums and taking an intimate approach to art direction and design, building his brand and developing more designs and artwork. We will all be looking forward to seeing what he accomplishes next with his limitless style and creativity.
