As we bring our previews and teasers for Art Basel Week here at AM to an end, we are sure you are just as anxious as we are to get into the fairs and onto the streets to see what we have all been waiting for. We start by bringing you an pictorial overview of the SCOPE Art Fair (with more in-depth looks later). Overall, we thought that the works offered this year were stronger than last year’s edition and hope you agree as well. […]

Playful mixed-media artist Jen Stark will be showcasing a new selection of her meticulously constructed sculptural works during Art Basel Week in Miami. Exhibiting with Carol Jazzar Gallery at SCOPE, her work is comprised of hand-cut pieces of acid-free color paper tirelessly layered upon one another until the aggregated abstractions, often three dimensional, are stunningly realized. Just thinking about the amount of time and effort put into cutting and connecting every last piece of paper with such precision makes my head hurt. However, the resulting […]

It looks like Mr. Gaia is getting things started down in Miami with this piece on 14th Street. The hybrid owl-human-rabbit looks similar to a piece he did for All City Block Party recently and has been layered on top of some Dick Chicken and Shark Toof (you can see this better after the jump…)
Kaws waxes philosphical in this new video from Nowness in their series of artist interviews for this year’s Art Basel. As he talks about life, we get a glimpse at some new work featuring some bold new colors heading out to different shows at this year’s fair including OHWOW’s group show and Emmanuel Perrotin’s booth. He’ll also be signing as well at the OHWOW bookstore at Miami’s Standard Hotel on December 3rd for those interested. Discuss KAWS here.
We already brought you a look at the Wynwood Walls project from Shepard Fairey, but now comes more images (North Miami St. & 28th) as he and his posse continue their assault on Miami. Expect more walls as Mr. Obey has plenty of events to keep him in town through the rest of the week including a brunch to honor him for being guest editor of PAPER’s art issue, DJing the Trespass release and signing / Miami New Times Party / Fountain Party, and hosting […]
