Luis Valle is a staple in the world re-known Wynwood arts district in Miami, FL. and a force in the art world. His large-scale murals can be viewed all over South Florida as well as internationally. His paintings consist of multiple vibrant colors forming patterns and waves of pulsating energy. The artist goal is to imprint on a surface and allow you to see the frequency, flow and vibration of the creative life force. That which holds and makes up all that is.
The Eagle and the Condor is an ancient Amazon prophecy that speaks of human societies splitting into two paths that of the Eagle, and that of the Condor. The path of the Condor is the path of heart, of intuition, and of the feminine. The path of the Eagle is the path of the mind, of the industrial, and of the masculine.
The prophecy says that the 1490s would begin a 500 year period during which the Eagle people would become so powerful that they would virtually drive the Condor people out of existence. This can be seen in the conquering of the Americas and the killing and oppressing of the indigenous peoples in the subsequent 500 years up to and including today.
The prophecy says that during the next 500-year period, beginning in 1990, the potential would arise for the Eagle and the Condor to come together, to fly in the same sky, and to create a new level of consciousness for humanity. The prophecy only speaks of the potential, so it’s up to us to activate this potential and ensure that a new consciousness is allowed to arise.
As the story of the Eagle and the Condor this exhibit will mimic some of the prophecy. The painting of the Eagle is currently in a group show in Pompano, Fl and will make its way to Colorado. While the Condor is currently in Los Angeles Where it was recently in a group show after being featured in Ocean Drive magazine. The Condor will make its way from the other side of the country and meet the Eagle in Denver, Colorado.
