Art Wall Alley with Latin Artist Luis Valle at CityPlace Doral



Latin artist and muralist Luis Valle, popularly known by his creative persona, El Chan Guri, will be creating a colorful installation in celebration of Venezuela at CityPlace Doral. The Miami-based artist, who will begin painting the mural on Wednesday, Oct. 28, as part of the “Art Wall Alley” event, will pay homage to the country’s national flower, the orchid Cattleya mossiae, known as flor de Mayo, and its national tree, the araguaney. Valle will unveil the finished installation in early November.


“It is important for me to paint a mural at CityPlace Doral that the Venezuelan community of Doral can relate to,” says Luis Valle. “I chose to incorporate the country’s national flower and national tree because I like to use natural elements in all of my works of art.” 

“CityPlace Doral is excited to welcome Luis Valle, and we will continue working with local schools and artists to fuse art with the center’s shopping and dining experiences,” says Alex Schreer. “It’s important that we shine a light on the remarkable art community throughout Miami, especially since Art Basel is no longer taking place this year.”

CityPlace Doral guests will have the opportunity to watch Valle painting the mural at the upscale shopping, dining and entertainment destination.

CityPlace Doral has implemented a number of important policies and procedures to safeguard the health and well-being of its valued guests and employees. The open-air entertainment destination has taken into account the best practices recommended by national experts like the CDC, as well as state and local health care officials, to determine the appropriate steps to make CityPlace Doral a place where guests feel comfortable venturing back into public and reconnecting with friends and family.
