Bubi Canal takes brightly colored, stylized photographs that cleverly utilize commonplace objects to create otherworldly scenarios. Through his whimsical vision, mundane items begin to resemble toys and the world, a playground. Canal will debut a new series of works for his solo show “Magic Garden,” opening at Munch Gallery in New York on March 14 and showing through April 19. Shot in NYC and Rochester, Canal’s latest photographs began as still lifes but quickly turned into quirky portraits with a unifying red, yellow, green, and blue color palette. In addition to photography, the show will also include video and sculpture.
