Bernardo Medina's development as an artist has been a long process of study and experimentation in medium, style and technique. Ten years ago this experimentation led him to create pieces with mixed media; he instantly recognized that he had found his calling. His work has always been an expression of love as many of his earlier works were given as presents to close friends and relatives who, in turn, were very frequently his inspiring muses. The ability to integrate objects found on his journeys to create beautiful strong colored abstract pieces caught the attention of a Puerto Rican based art dealer and connoisseur, who gave him the opportunity to exhibit his art in her gallery upon recognizing his innate artistic fervor.
Bernardo debuted at a collective charitable exhibition in 2006 with his first series titled Fly Hi. Fly Hi consisted of renditions of airplanes in various shapes and sizes while establishing his trademark of utilizing color accents and vintage advertisements in order to convey his message.
In April 2008, Azar (Chance) became his first solo show, highlighting in this series the element of coincidence in all kinds of human relationships, from coworkers, to friends, and family. Hearts of different shapes and colors where the main theme of this exhibition.
The year 2009 represents for Bernardo the beginning of the internationalization of his works. He will show his most recent collection titled Fly Away in Miami, Florida; his first show outside of Puerto Rico.

Carlos Hoyos is a modern day renaissance man who has succeeded in utilizing his creative and artistic side as well as his highly methodical, technically adroit side by staying focused and true to his passions, photography and aerospace.
The result is a marvelous incorporation of artistic skill and innovation as seen through his unique brand of photography that has aerospace as a common thread. In his burgeoning collections (“Cartagena, A Panoramic Aerial Vision”, “Botero Sculptures”,and “Convair 990”), Hoyos’ sharp eye, impeccable sense of light and framing, and excellent taste is clearly reflected.
Whether he uses aerospace technology to capture distinct images or showcases aircraft as his subject, Hoyos’ is quickly gaining recognition from collectors and critics as a groundbreaking photographer.


Born in Caracas, Venezuela in 1957, Fernando Sucre was raised on a steady diet of 1960’s American television (Astroboy, Jonny Quest and The Jetsons dubbed in Spanish) while being exposed to space age design and technology by his father, the national government’s chief engineer. Somewhere along the way, his father’s bridges and highways and those wacky futuristic cartoons produced a lasting impression on this young and creative mind. Though gifted from an early age with drawing and painting skills, Sucre listened to his parents’ sense of reason and decided to pursue a career in aeronautical engineering. Sucre attended college in the United States at the Spartan School of Aeronautics in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida. After working several years in the aerospace field as an engineer and licensed mechanic at companies like Arrow Air and Eastern Airlines, Sucre began to realize that his true calling might not lie in fixing aircraft. Acting on his natural artistic inclinations, he decided to explore the world of painting and enrolled in a fine arts school in Caracas. While exploring imagery that captivated his mind’s eye, Sucre became aware that he had somehow fallen under the spell of the American Pop culture. Blending his engineer’s perspective with his artistic fascination for everything “pop”, Sucre began to paint in a style that echoed the American pop art masters Warhol and Lichtenstein while at the same time incorporating something uniquely Latino into his work.
His one man show “POP AIR” at the InterFlight Studio Gallery in the Wynwood Art District offers a colorful blending of Sucre’s life experiences. He painted a whole hangar-full of fabulous pop airplanes. From early aerospace and vintage aircraft to World War II bombers to modern fighters, commercial carriers and Lear jets, it’s obvious that Sucre still loves airplanes. But these aren’t just any old airplanes… these aircraft are flying through the crazy POP world of “Sucrevision”; hot pink Concordes, purple 747’s and lemon yellow Cessna’s. This is obviously an artist in his element. It’s fun, it’s POP, it’s Fernando Sucre and its worth a look!


Hervé Alexandre

Born in Rouen, France, Hervé Alexandre excelled in the arts from a young age, however it was not until he focused his studies on portraiture and painting at Toulouse, France, and over to Ottowa, Canada from 1981 to 1984 that he truly refined his skill and style. Alexandre prefers to create realistic works in irrealistic media and colors. His material use range from pastel, charcoal, acrylic, oil, and pen on board or canvas and incorporate collages as well.
Hervé Alexandre’s portraiture depicts various subjects, largely drawn from his travels, or in the case of the aerospace Collection, his occupation, working for Air France. Alexandre has dedicated collections to Mongolia, China, Latin America, and Africa and some of the aerospace Portraits are in the permanent collection of the Sao Paolo aerospace Museum in Brazil.
Alexandre has been creating aerospace inspired pieces since 2006 and we are pleased to present them to you at InterFlight Studio Gallery and at Out of the Blue Café located at 2426 NE 2nd Ave (just blocks away from the gallery).

Artist Statement

“Some people see things in clouds - I see things in wood. In the beginning I saw furniture, untamed and whimsical, and yet refined. As this wildwood journey progressed, I saw Martian smoke trails blasting out of rustic rocket ships.
My challenge lies in teasing the vision out of the wood. Sometimes it is easy and takes a few days or weeks. Other times it is difficult and takes years to complete a piece. I think the most difficult challenge of this work is to allow the wood to speak for itself. How does one open one’s eyes to see the depths of what happens in nature? As I contemplate my own tentative relationship with the earth, I find myself identifying with gnarled trees; our twisted trunks, knots and burls are a visible testament to the struggles we have lived through, and the more "character" we develop, the more interesting we become. Perhaps this kinship is what lights the creative fire in my belly and draws me into this wildwood world.
Whether it’s an original in wood or a casting out of bronze, you can be sure that it tickled my fancy or touched my soul along the way.”
-Erik R. Lindbergh


About Peter Valentino

Peter Valentino is a fine artist and designer with 35 years of experience. American born, self-taught at a very early age, with a remarkable ability to work with metal, wood, and glass, he has created a majestic portfolio of work turning aerospace materials, objects, artifacts and composing sculptures and installations that become spectacular works of art.
Mr. Valentino's pieces for Flight Studio are inspired by his passion for aviation, aerospace and theme of flight. His fascination for flight and airplanes began when he was 15, or even a younger age. His first piece, an inspired yet elegant intricately detailed aircraft, created completely of wire, was completed when he was only 16. The seed of fine art and fine sculptural functional design was planted. At 19 years old, art and flight merged and Peter became a pilot. He received his pilot's license and it was at this point in time that the intersection of his love of flight and his artistic talents were fused formally in an equation that has lasted a lifetime and promises to be latent in his work for decades and even generations to come. Mr. Valentino has since created aerospace works growing in importance and with museum and archival quality. Flight Studio curators have spoken highly about his masterful replicas of aviation-themed pieces as collectible artifacts, appreciating contemporary works d'art, elegant gifts and inspiring illustrations of what is possible when flight meets art and design at its finest.
Peter's imagination as his guiding light has connected with collectors, investors and galleries worldwide. Over time, carefully selected airplane parts, acquired through an inspired and flight enlightened process, oftentimes reflecting on his extensive flight relationship as a pilot, as the critical raw materials by which to create the final master pieces.
Imagination, possibility and timelessness emanate from Peter's sculpture, wall art, furniture, displays, and other luxury accessories. Bespoke design have successfully exceeded client and collectors' expectations as Peter blends the client's inspiration and desires with his unique and masterful translation into works of fine art and design.

Aerospace Functional Art at its Finest

Peter Valentino custom-builds and sells a very limited number of one-of-a-kind aviation-themed bars, designed to appeal to most discriminating collector's, investors and high net worth individuals who want to pursue their passions, interest in the theme of flight and express their originality while still demanding the highest quality and exacting standards in workmanship and materials.
With almost 30 years experience in fabricating distinctive, handcrafted flight themed projects encompassing a wide variety of aerospace materials. Peter's specialized themes, assembled with aircraft components, painstakingly restored, and incorporating them into unique composition, furniture and lighting designs.
His aerospace design creations, in the form of a humidor, are truly one-of-a-kind and reflect the skill and expertise of fine craftsmen applying their full potential.
Each bar sculptural masterpiece takes months from inception through completion – requiring more than 1,000 hours of extensive restoration in addition to hundreds of hours under machinery.

Influenced by modern lines and aviation design, Yoshi Yasuda creates art furniture which is a departure from traditional furnishings. He unifies the elements of sculpture and function in his bold and expressive modern designs incorporating fine woods, vintage airplane parts and other complimentary materials to create a truly unique product.


The first time I walked through an aircraft cemetery, I was in awe at these dead lords of the air. Large commercial airplanes laying on their bellies, missing tails and noses, fuselages cut open like the carcass of a giant mammoth. I asked the manager of the yard what happened to the carcass once all the usable spare parts had been taken away and sold. He said "well, I guess we cut them up to get them ready to become beer cans". Beer cans. My soul was in tears. These flying dragons, these noble machines, are one of man's greatest achievements. A loyal craft which had taken people's dreams all around the world countless times. Beer cans...
I picked up a few parts on my pickup truck. I refused to let their souls be chopped up and their bodies be turned into such un-noble devices.
I gave these beautifully crafted and engineered objects new meaning, new life, new purpose. I decided that "rebirth" was a much more fitting term for their souls, rather than "recycle".

Facundo is a Miami based designer born in Argentina in 1971. He was trained as a master builder back in his native Buenos Aires and moved to Boston in the early 1990's where he graduated from Architecture school and also received a Masters Degree in Urban Affairs and Environmental Problems. Poj is a handcrafter of furniture and objects. His use of materials is definitely on the unconventional side of the spectrum. Poj spends much of his time looking for treasures in junk yards. He searches for objects with a soul and a lasting quality to them. Mr. Poj ponders on the subject of memory and historic value. Historic value not at the superficial level of style and form, but at a deeper level, he values the biography of objects and materials.
Poj also invests much energy researching new ways of using materials of great qualities which are not that far into the unconventional, but which have not fallen yet into the hands of large scale mainstream manufacturing. All his furniture pieces are designed through high technology, handcrafted, and built for life.
Mr. Poj's design services and exclusive handcrafted pieces have been sought not only by private clients and collectors, but also by important corporate clients such as Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton USA, Veuve Clicquot, Ecoist, Dom Perignon, Citrine by the Stones, Simmons of Argentina and others.


As an artist and furniture designer, De Astis pays homage to the numerous man-hours spent by others in creating these fantastic pieces of metal, creatively transforming each part into a new work of art. In his studio, he harmonizes the metal with new materials-glass, wood, stone, leather, metal sheeting, rivets-which results in impressive, highly crafted pieces of functional furniture, including chairs, desks, lamps, tables, and other pieces for the home, office and even public spaces. Aerodynamic and powerful in design, these unique objects reflect the creative mind and boundless energy of the artist and designer.
Giancarlo de Astis grew up in various countries around the world--Mexico, United States, Italy, Venezuela, Tunisia and Australia. As a result of his extensive travels and experiences with diverse cultures, he is fluent in English, Spanish, Italian and French. As a teenager, he attended schools in Florence and Rome, receiving a liberal arts education and exposure to monuments of Western art and architectural history on a daily basis. He graduated Cum Laude from Tufts University in Boston with a degree in International Relations and Economics.
In 2001, a series of dramatic changes in his personal life led De Astis to pursue a longtime dream of designing and building hand crafted furniture using parts from old airplanes. He traveled throughout the Southwest, West and Northwest regions of the United States for eight weeks in a VW camper, making a seminal stop in Arizona to visit the junkyards where planes await their meltdown. He purchased a number of parts and rented a U-Haul truck to bring them back to Los Angeles. Even prior to this moment, he had already begun sketching ideas for furniture. His first inspiration emanated from an airplane ride over the Mojave Desert in 1995, when for the first time he witnessed the "bone yards" where hundreds of airplanes--row by row--are laid to rest.

For Giancarlo De Astis earning his Artistic license starts in the American West, where millions of creative man-hours are already embedded in the shapes of tens of thousands of airplanes glimmering under intense heat.
"When I toured the area in Mojave where the airplanes are parked, I began to notice the shapes and curves of the aircraft. They moved me. The parts and pieces of the planes were beautiful in and of themselves"
Inspired to perpetuate their existence as the works of art they are; Giancarlo blends the splendor of each part with time-honored crafting materials.
In the studio he refines his visualization of the finished piece, chooses harmonizing materials and begins to craft, and so the metamorphosis begins.
During this inventive process a mixture occurs that renews the part as a distinct and functional furniture piece- transformed, the airplane part then survives with fresh purpose. Resulting in extraordinary works of aviation art!
"It's not so much about me it's the piece itself". "I often wondered what it is that makes people still line up to see a painting that was done 500 years ago, I decided it was because the artist had left a piece of himself there and it's the passion of that person - Picasso, Rembrandt and Renoir - that keeps drawing us back. The moment that you touch somebody emotionally, that's the moment. That's what I try to do with my furniture."


Yvette and Oscar Garcia have been inspired by the magic of flight since their early childhood. Meeting aboard a 747 aircraft, Oscar as a Pilot and Yvette as an adventurous globe trotting passenger.

Since then, they have lived a flying life-love story immersed in the world of flight, fuelling  their creativity and supported their joint work as designers and artists for more than  a decade.

Through their designs, Oscar and Yvette address the fundamental attributes of mankind’s possibilities through the magic of flight.

Their designs evoke and reflect, elegantly, the intelligent, creative, artistic and humanitarian dimensions of flight, in all their splendour.

“Our artist and designer vision is twofold, first to create and deliver unique items that embody the “art of flight” and give a sense of infinite space, time, peace and freedom. And second, to place our designs in spaces that allow the collectors, owners or viewers to share in the emotions and inspiration of flight”. Yvette Garcia states

We offer to our clients, private, public and corporate the opportunity to acquire and collect our art creations, designs, artefacts and objects and to  inspire them to be conscious, to look above, beyond and to marvel about flight, and the infinite sky and space around us.

About Oscar                                                                                                           

Oscar is a unique aviation artist, with a piloting, strong science and business backgrounds. Oscar reconnected with his childhood passion for drawing and painting after more than twenty years, and meeting Yvette flying as a pilot on a Boeing 747 aircraft.

Oscar’s aerospace bound life story details are intriguing and engaging. Starting his craft at a very early age, he was known for selling self-adhesive photo collages to his peers in primary schools to decorate their school books, motor scooters and even room wallpapers. Model airplanes, sketches and early day canvases, often given as gifts to aspiring aviators and charities are scattered around the world.
Oscar’s work is unique, simple, yet powerful paintings, painted model aircraft and aircraft three dimensional collage compositions and assemblages.

About Yvette

Yvette’s art education started at a young age in The Netherlands. Through her upbringing in Asia and travel experiences, her style matured and evolved into a multi culturally reflection on the aesthetics of life, flight, love and family.  She uses a rich variety of objects, animals, planets, aircraft and birds which merge into backgrounds and sculptural arrangements that are simple yet powerfully appealing to the senses. Yvette’s creations reflect  and propose that soaring above, taking flight anywhere, could very well  be the driving force of love and harmony everywhere in the world ,and the universe.

 I am a flight engineer of the Japan Air Line cockpit crew on board B747. The total flight time is approximately 15,000 hours. Flying in the great arch of the sky, I can see many countries and splendid views. Richard Kai, my artist name, has been chosen to promote my artwork overseas. In Japan, I won two Prova Awards, which are given to landscapes, for both of two pieces of the artwork I sent. One of the awards is named after Sasakura Teppei, a famous painter known for his European landscapes. Afterwards, I started my new career. I have selected Honolulu as my main business site and have been creating new paintings. 

In Japan, I have produced truly unique pieces of artwork that I call Cockpit Art. I appeared on a TV news program by Osaka Mainichi TV Station, Voice. Featuring my artwork, the program was titled as “Cockpit is art: Guess the first job of a popular painter.” It attracted many responses from viewers. Mainichi TV Station broadcasts another popular TV series, Jonetsu Tairiku, which features one person’s life. They are interested in featuring my life in which I am pursuing my own dream through working 
as a flight engineer and an artist. 

It is my honor to have my artwork displayed in Honolulu. I love Hawai‘i so much. It has many fascinating themes: a wonderful time on Waikiki Beach where people are having a good time with their pleasant thoughts. I hope that your clients can see people’s enjoyment and dream through my playful artwork. 
I use acrylic paints on canvas for any of my artwork.

 Born in Spain, PEREZ MELERO began his career in Venezuela where he lived from the late 1950's until the early 1980's. Maintaining workshops in Caracas and New York, he is an artist who exhibits his work internationally and is in public collections which include the Spanish Museum of Contemporary Art, CANTV, Fundarte, the American Institute of Architects, Intel Corporation, the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and the Women in Military Service for America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC.

My 3-dimensional constructions are built mostly from wood, paper, canvas and acrylic paint. Their ideas evolve from an organic and intuitive process. The final work is a combination of my creative vision and a highly organized process employing disciplines of geometry and applied design.
Viewers should interact physically with my constructions. They need to walk around them and view them from different perspectives. Up close one can see the detailed and intricate methods of their construction. From further back, one can appreciate their total effect. Color and light and how they interact are central to my work. Color is painted on pieces of wood attached to a high-contrast geometric background. Light penetrates between them, reflecting color from one to another and on the background.
These reflected colors seem to mix in the air and produce an impression of others.
As light sources change angle or intensity, and as the viewer moves around the work, new colors can be perceived even though they aren't really there.
The interaction between color and light has produced an illusion.
This relationship between color and light, in part, defines my work. Color and light and how they interact are central to my work.

“Like the stories of our lives, the contrails of an aircraft move forward, reflecting on our past, rejoicing in our present and pointing to our future. Flight is the journey of life. With my work, I wish that the essence of the human soul materializes through the metaphor of flight.”
About the Artist:
PilotO, is a unique aviation artist, with a piloting, strong science and business background. PilotO reconnected with his childhood passion for drawing and painting after more than twenty years involved in the aviation and aerospace industries as an engineering student, airline transport pilot flying Boeing 747’s worldwide and also as a successful international executive and consultant.  IFS exclusively represents PilotO’s work  and collectors are deeply touched by his unique, simple, yet powerful paintings, painted model aircraft and aircraft three dimensional collage compositions and assemblages.
PilotO’s aerospace bound life story details are intriguing and engaging. Starting his craft at a very early age, he was known for selling self-adhesive photo collages to his peers in primary schools to decorate their school books, motor scooters and even room wallpapers. Model airplanes, sketches and early day canvases, often given as gifts to aspiring aviators and charities are scattered around the world.
PilotO’s is an early “mature” artist, in his early forties. His life career makes some of his work’s details and “style context” accurate yet simple and inspired.  His work exudes the soul of one who, flying around the world for years, has been impregnated and fascinated with the views outside “cockpit” windows. PilotO innocently and with simple, sometimes “child like”  naïve elegance re creates the drama and the “spectacle” of the sky as a magnificent  gate to mankind’s universes of dreams and passions……..both known and familiar yet unknown and mysterious.
His work’s statement are subtle, poetic, yet swift and dynamic as the images he must have seen and emotions  felt through the cumulative hours, days or even years spent aloft.
