The 2017 A2IM Indie Week independent music conference is being held this week at the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center and Frames and Stretchers is proud to have framed several works being exhibited as part of the event. A2IM Indie Week 2017 is an international conference and networking event aimed at maximizing the global impact of Independent music. 2017’s Indie Week is the largest to date, and includes interactive panels, workshops, keynote speeches by Independent music luminaries, and one-on-one discussions. Miguel Trelles is a long time resident artist at the Clemente as well as a partner here at Frames and Stretchers. His work was chosen to grace the walls of the Teatro LATEA space on the second floor where the “One-on–One” networking sessions are taking place during the conference.

Miguel Trelles is a painter/printmaker with a Latin American sensibility that incorporates a passion for his Cuban and Puerto Rican roots, a fascination with pre-Columbian cultures and a keen awareness of Latin American and Latino history. Trelles is known for his on-going Chino-Latino painting series, which blends a contemporary Caribbean aesthetic with references to Chinese sources and imagery. His paintings are included in several permanent collections including: Fundación Gabarrón (Spain), Deutsche Bank (New York), and the Museo de Arte de Ponce (Puerto Rico). His work has been addressed in various art publications such as “Arte al Día”, “Art in America”, “Art Nexus” and “YISHU: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art”.
