Subliminal Initiatives is delighted to current MUCHO, by Mexican-American visible artist and vogue designer Sofia Enriquez. The exhibition showcases the breadth of Enriquez’s follow including high-quality art, sculpture, bespoke hand-manufactured installations, and clothes. In partnership with Obey Clothing and in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition, the artist will release a new constrained T-shirt and a collection of choose hand-painted products from the Obey Garments line, exhibited in a pop-up MUCHO X OBEY shop within the exhibition.
Enriquez’s work investigates her intercultural identity as a result of the use of vibrant distinctive symbolism, creating an car- biographical legend that weaves themes of Mexican-catholic iconography, indigenous homage, Spanglish textual content, modern-day pop-society references, and female toughness. This one of a kind fashion has garnered her collaborations with the Coachella and Stage Coach audio festivals, a tailor made confined Dickies selection, and a solo exhibition at the Hawaii Condition Artwork Museum, as well as quite a few mural projects during Southern California.
Stemming from a passing comment by her mom, “Mija, porque haces mucho?” (translation: “Mija, why are you performing so much?”) the phrase “mucho” resonated and described Enriquez’s insatiable push to create. As a result, MUCHO grew to become a muse, a tag, and a moniker for her upcycled clothing line. The exhibition serves as a study of MUCHO as a brand name and visual expression of Enriquez’s individual knowledge as a woman artist coming from a operating-class immigrant family members, and what it means to attain good results within just the backdrop of discovering her personal cultural identity.
