Nothing Goes to Waste is a solo exhibition at Art Center South Florida by Miami-based artist, Gustavo Oviedo. I have been drawn to everything that this humble, bubbly artist creates since the late 1990s. He continues to research, explore and evolve with no limitations, covering an array of creative mediums. It has been a true pleasure watching his natural progression as an artist and I always look forward to whats to come.
Solange Sarria is a Session Stylist at Snip Salon in Miami Beach. I am terribly lucky that I met her because she agreed to make a project of my very long brown hair. Over the next couple of months, I will undergo a series of haircuts until I have pixie hair. This first style was my dream request for “cloud hair”. Solange is an artist. I asked Solange to tell us about herself and here is what she had to say:
I started cutting hair as a teenager for friends and family. Usually on the roof of my apartment building where I hosted parties. Haircuts would be traded for cigarettes and beer.
I got my first assisting job at Snip Salon. I assisted every summer in between attending The School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a drawing and sculpture major. After many long nights in the studio and long walks in bitter snow, the fine art degree dream shattered. Art school became totally unaffordable after 3 years and I was lost without a cause.
Beauty school gave me a purpose to move on and Snip Salon molded me into the professional creative I am today. Hair is my main medium now and sculpting it is my art. I love building relationships and enabling people to look at themselves in a positive way.

The Rubell Family Collection is truly remarkable on so many levels. It is known as one of the world’s largest, privately owned contemporary art collections. The foundation has a public library with over 40,000 volumes which I plan on spending some serious time with.
