Art Basel Miami 2011

I was recently given the opportunity to participate in a very cool exhibit taking place at this year’s Art Basel in Miami, Florida in December.  Art Basel Miami Beach is the most prestigious art show in the Americas, and this year will mark its 10th edition.  More than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa will take part, showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists.  DC based gallery, Art Whino, will be hosting a 3 day exhibit in conjunction with the event.  I’ll be featured in the custom vinyl exhibit, organized by graffiti/vinyl artist and past COMnGRAF exhibitor, Sket One.  Read all about it…

Art Whino: ART BASEL
3 Day exhibit during Art Basel Miami

In conjunction with Art Basel, Miami and its surrounding Art Fairs, Art Whino will present three exhibitions unified in one space. The focus this year will be to present New Brow’s distinct subcultures to the Art Basel world. The custom vinyl exhibit will showcase the premiere artists in this genre.  With a series of large scale murals, we will bring street art indoors and accompany each colossal piece with smaller works by each artist. Finally, we will team up with Hope Gallery to bring Quick & Painful.  This exhibit will feature the work of more than 15 important artists and designers with backgrounds in fine art, graffiti, and illustration in a unique exhibition where Fine Art becomes tattooed skin.  The exhibition will be located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District along with other accompanying art fairs.

Also in front of the exhibit participating artists will be painting Large Scale Murals on the outside of 10 buildings stretching from NW 2nd Ave to NW 5th Ave.  Participating Mural artists include Angry Woebots, Pixel Pancho, J*Ryu, KaNO, Jim Mahfood, Josh Taylor, Lou Pimentel, Mauricio Murillo, Tobar, Sket One, Ritzy Periwinkle, Shane Jessup, Tristan Eaton, Charlie Owens, Czr Prz, Boosher, LEZA ONE, Jeremiah Ketner, Scotch, Joe Iurato, Galo, Zedone,  Mathew Curran,  Steve Lew and Many More!
