South Florida Artist Brings Two Worlds Together
Further highlighting his love of autos, noted French-American Artist Duaív will once again leave his artistic imprint on a McLaren 675LT Spider, his newest acquisition at this year’s 47th annual Miami International Auto Show which runs from September 9-17 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
“Duaív’s autos have captured the creative imagination of thousands of South Floridians who have visited the Miami International Auto Show and Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show during the past three years,” said Cliff Ray, show coordinator. “His artistic interpretations are a wonderful addition to our show and extremely popular with those who attend.”
Duaív has dedicated himself to highlighting the connection between creative design and auto ingenuity with a passion of bringing the art and automotive worlds together.
An internationally recognized artist, Duaív has spent his lifetime nurturing, fostering and sharing the arts with the world. He picked up his first paintbrush by age three and completed his first oil painting by age nine. Duaív is also considered a world-class cellist.
Duaív is a colorful man with hair that matches the full spectrum of art that he creates using cans of paint rather than tubes. In 2015, he joined the prestigious Coconut Grove Arts Festival’s selective group of official poster artists. He continues to exhibit all over the world in locations such as France, Switzerland, Belgium, Spain, South America and Australia.
