At ChinaSquare Gallery in Art Miami, pixelated images by Alex Guofeng Cao appear to be huge photographs. But look closely and you'll see that the "pixels" are really tiny photographic images. The portrait of President Barack Obama is made up of photos of President Abraham Lincoln; Marilyn Monroe is composed of tiny images of JFK; JFK of tiny images of Monroe. Sold opening night: An image of Carla Bruni, made up of tiny images of French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Even larger were the chromogenic prints of Alex Guofeng Cao at Pan-American Projects (Miami). Cao’s technique creates pictures of celebrity faces from many small prints of other celebrity faces. On display were Princess Di wrought from tiny faces of Princess Grace, James Dean made from tiny Elvis faces, and Marilyn Monroe created out of tiny Mona Lisa faces.

One art installation that seemed to get a lot of attention all day was a three piece series of chromogenic prints displayed by Pan American Art Projects. The installation, by artist Alex Guofeng Cao, consisted of a James Dean photo made entirely of Elvis images, a Princess Diana photo made of Princess Grace images and the ever so popular 9ft Marilyn Monroe photo made of the Mona Lisa. The Monroe, getting more praise it seemed than any, had a beauty about it that just drew people in. By the end of the day, I lost count of how many people posed for a photo next to it.

En la ChinaSquare Gallery en Art Miami, pixeladas imágenes de Alex Guofeng Cao parecen enormes fotografías. Pero, cuando se miran de cerca, se ve que los "pixeles'' son, en realidad, diminutas fotografías. El retrato del presidente Obama está hecho de fotos de Abraham Lincoln; Marilyn Monroe esta compuestas por minúsculas fotos de JFK y JFK está hecho de minúsculas imágenes de Monroe. En la noche inaugural se vendió una imagen de Carla Bruni, compuesta de diminutas imágenes del presidente de Francia Nicolás Sakozy.

Still for sale Jackson is the portrait that the Chinese artist Alex Guofeng Cao shows the much smaller exhibition Art Miami. Bij nadere beschouwing blijkt dat deze ode, te zien bij de China Square Gallery, is opgebouwd uit allemaal piepkleine zwart-witfotootjes van Marilyn Monroe. Closer examination shows that this ode, see the China Square Gallery, consists of tiny all-black witfotootjes of Marilyn Monroe. "Michael and Marilyn are both much too early to a drug overdose deceased", explains the author.
