〉ILL’N SINCE 1974
Pete Kirill’s practice originated from a series of neo-Pop portraits, anchored by the artificial persona and physical gestures of enigmatic, former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il. At present, Kirill’s work investigates the fractured relationships between conscience, consumerism and Capitalism: his satirical portraits fuse iconic film and music stars with equally important figures from the hip-hop world. Kirill’s work opens complex possibilities and associations from within and without the fabricated personas of these individuals (such as James Dean, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monore, Sophia Loren and Sean Connery), prompting his audience to reconsider their respective public legacies. They become stars all over again, a double-layer of celebrity varnish.
〉Pete Kirill was born in Mobile, Alabama in 1974. He received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (concentration in Fine Art and Design). Kirill collaborated with techno-timba music collective Sin Palabras (Havana) from 2000 to 2003. His first solo exhibition, A Communist Dictator Visits Miami, debuted at Myra Galleries Miami in October 2011. In February 2013 he completed MC Elvis, a full-scale mural in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District, receiving widespread coverage from The Miami Herald, CBS News Miami, FOX News Miami and Yareah Magazine. Kirill lives and works in Miami. He has since completed projects in Miami, Hollywood (Florida) and New York.
