EQUILIBRIUM

by. One Powerful Mind

New York Minded is pleased to present “Equilibrium” the first solo exhibition by, self-taught artist Edgar Bolanos.
Edgar Bolanos goes by the moniker One Powerful Mind when working as an “Avant Garde Photographer”. He is a skilled artist in many different mediums.  Edgar’s photography conveys a personal and professional improvement, which showcases internal conflicts, society’s obsession with beauty and physical alterations, and a distant presence of Christianity. Most of the images are manipulated and distorted through digital photography and his editing skills.

Edgar was born in Ecuador and raised in Corona (Queens), New York.  Growing up in NYC, graffiti was an early
creative outlet for Edgar and used the name Virus as his “Tag”. Edgar abandoned his sketchbook and aerosol cans for a digital camera.  Being an active member of the young creative community in Queens, his first experiences as a photographer came as fashion editorial shoots for independent print and online publications and photographed models such as Omyra Mota, El Grace, and Bradley Soileau, along with others. Edgar has also worked with brands such as Diesel, Sabit, Pyer Moss, and Evident Future as a photographer for their look books and product shoots, most recently Chrome Barrio, a menswear line in which Edgar handles art direction.

Edgar’s first public showing as an artist took place at “Wip”, a New York City nightclub that invited him to paint live at weekly events. During this time Edgar gained recognition by attendees which included Aimee Kestenberg, Jordan Adoni and Pharrell Williams, just to name a few. After his time at “Wip”, Edgar was commissioned to produce pieces for The Adoni Group, multi accessories and apparel brand showroom located in New York’s garment district.  Feeling accomplished and humbled by these accolades Edgar started printing works and producing new ones for his first show “Equilibrium” with us at New York Minded. “Equilibrium” opened on August 8th, 2013 to a crowd of about 200 art lovers, industry notables and supporters of his work.

Edgar will be exhibiting at various venues in Miami during Art Basel Miami, 2013.
