As we mentioned in the Kris Kuski article, Joshua Liner Gallery’s booth was one of the most stunning that we saw at SCOPE Miami this year. Showcasing a trinity of heavy talent that the Chelsea gallery will represent in the upcoming year, it wasn’t a surprise to see passersby drawn to the dynamic displays. AM favorite Ian Francis (featured) created a fresh batch of works for Basel Week and his warped environments were as intriguing and hypnotic as we have come to expect from the […]
New York’s highly prestigious Sikkema Jenkins & Co. had many ooohs and aahs by visitors at their Art Basel Miami Beach booth due particularly to the piece above by one of the most talked-about artists recently – Mark Bradford.

The booth included work by many other acclaimed artists, such as Kara Walker, Vik Muniz, and William Cordova. It was quality throughout as you will […]
One of the most anticipated events of Basel Week Miami was the opening party for Ryan McGinness’ latest series of works Women: The New Blacklight Paintings. Presented by the folks at Country Club x The Standard Miami, the show was held inside a South Beach Strip Club (Club Madonna).

Upping the ante for the opening, […]

The lux booth design was inviting as pimp couches and rugs invited spectators to take a load off to stare at a great preview of artwork for the […]
As you know, Wynwood Walls was one of the centerpieces of the Art Basel Week Miami experience when it came to outdoor work. Other than the photos we shared with you here, we thought you would like to see some video footage of all the action provided by Vernissage TV. As an added bonus, Tony Goldman, the man behind the entire project, and his daughter Jessica were interviewed on the subject (seen after the jump).

Sharing the stage with the street art at Art Basel Week Miami were the graffiti artists although the lines between the two are sometimes blurred.

Check out a selection of photos after the jump, but for a lot more, go to Focused On Graff’s photostream…
