AVE PILDAS

MEET AN ARTIST MONDAY: AVE PILDAS

SHANA NYS DAMBROT

MARCH 2, 2020
Ave Pildas started on the path to his remarkable career in music photography in the 1960’s, becoming the Capitol Records art director in 1971, and all the while maintained an evolving personal, journalistic and fine-art practice that has earned as much acclaim as his iconic jazz and rock portraits. His most popular works favor grids and series of multiple viewpoints expressive of people activating public spaces and the angular serendipity of its architecture. We corresponded with Pildas from his remote location on a trip to the Brazilian island of Itaparica, in advance of his new exhibition set to open at Tufenkian Fine Arts this week, showcasing a powerful selection of recent works.
