FRANKIE CIHI - HYBRID INFINITY
Tokyo-based artist Frankie Cihi created Hybrid Infinity, a dazzling, large-scale mural on the façade of a bare parking structure at CityPlace, as part of the city’s cultural revitalization program. Hybrid Infinity consists of three hand-painted bays which extend across the parking garage’s façade, transforming the building with Cihi’s geometric abstractions of traditional Japanese patterns and motifs. The parking structure is located directly in front of the “All Aboard Florida” high-speed rail tracks on the Quadrille Boulevard side of the structure, and allows train passengers, along with pedestrians and drivers alike, to catch a glimpse of Cihi’s whimsical imagery in optimistic shades of blue, pink, and orange. The completion of Hybrid Infinity is Cihi’s largest public installation and first in the United States.
