Born and raised in Miami, Enrique Mastrapa, ABSTRK, is a Cuban American artist whose family immigrated to the United States in the 1960s during the Pedro Pan and Freedom Flights exiles. With a background in both graffiti and traditional fine art, ABSTRK’s work has been praised for its kinetic movement and bold colors. His work consists of forms pulled off of outlines and letter structure. It is diverse in the subject matter at the same time always relative to his style-isms and shapes. His creations have been featured on canvases at leading art institutions as well as on outdoor walls throughout America and the Caribbean.
“For this collaboration, I was inspired by the diverse color palettes of Miami — from the sun-tinted beach skylines to the neon-bathed nightlife,” said ABSTRK. “This mural is a celebration of my city, my community and my cultural heritage which I’m proud to share with the world. Working with TANGO HOTEL to bring this collection to life has been an incredible experience.”
