For the release of his audiovisual album #7DJ (Seven Days in Jamaica), which includes a short film composed of seven interconnected videos and songs, Maluma felt it would be an amazing opportunity to collaborate with Federico Uribe to bring his vision of infusing an immersive world of music, art and life. Uribe is known as a master in the artistry of utilizing recycled materials to create life-like sculptures and unique art pieces.
Maluma and Uribe have come together for a month to present a gallery experience, open to the public, of sustainable art that exhibits sculptures and art pieces made from common trash to represent the beauty of our world created by Uribe, in an 18,500 square foot showroom in Wynwood, Miami.
The captivating experience includes a handmade portrait of Maluma, created with common trash for the #7DJ album cover. In addition, Maluma selected seven pieces made with recycled materials that portray the earth through the ocean, forest, farmland and much more to accompany each track featured in the album.
Uribe created an atmosphere of the earth that brings many elements of their Colombian homeland to life. To see photos of the artwork selected by Maluma for the album and exhibition, click HERE and to read their descriptions, click HERE.
In addition, the artwork created for the main album cover will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to environmental non-profits presented by Maluma’s foundation, El Arte De Los Sueños, such as: Fundación Amigos del Mar, Jardín Botánico de Cartagena y Stand Up Providencia. Also, 33% of the proceeds from the other seven pieces will be donated to benefit these organizations. The pieces that are not sold during this charity auction after February 28th will be available at Artsy.
For #7DJ, the versatile ever-evolving singer/songwriter takes his sound in a completely unexpected new direction fusing Latin urban music with reggae and dancehall, collaborating with renowned Jamaican artists Ziggy Marley and Charly Black and incorporating traditional Jamaican musicians and live instruments (trumpets, saxophone, bass, drums). While each track has a distinct style; they are all seamlessly interconnected. The result is a latin urban world music masterpiece that is refreshing and as magical as the journey that inspired it.
Shot in Jamaica and Los Angeles, 36 Grados produced the short film comprised of seven interconnected videos that make the album an audiovisual adventure. To watch it click HERE.
