Those who did not get enough of POW the first day went back for day two of the POW Open Day event. The second visit allowed more time to take photos of art and merchandise for sale.Â Probably the highlight was this Banksy canvas.Â More detailed pics of this as well as other work for sale after the jump.
Already revved up from the Gen Art VanguardÂ Gala (Here)… Friday night got even more crazy as DJ Diabetic and Ztrip tag teamed the turntables for a packed Shore Club in South Beach. Shepard gave back in his usual gracious fashion as he threw a party for all his friends and fans. The party was super packed but security kept it cool and managed the crazy crowd wait to see Shepard and Ztrip. Once inside, the vibe was amazing. Numerous peeps were in attendance: Jose Parla, […]
Art Basel is not the only game in town. The crush of quality art fairs are a dream and a curse for art lovers. One has only so much time in the day! The PulseÂ Art Fair was one of the stops for us and the amount of amazing art was unbelievable! If you were here, we would suggest that you get surgery to put your head on a swivel because you’ll constantly be spinning around like R2D2 trying to absorb the visual delights. Of course, […]
POW’s day one of their highly anticipated Open Day event kicked off yesterday to the delight of collectors. As expected, street art fans arrived in droves, with reports of lines exceeding three hours.Â Rights to purchase were determined by lottery with the first winner getting the special Nola (with different blue-green rain) and the second prize being a free Banksy “Very little helps” TESCO print.Â The other other winners got an option to buy the print (edition of 299, Â£350 ) – we can assume […]
Night time at Basel week is where the heavy wheeling and dealing occurs. Galleries and sponsors line up numerous parties for prospective clients. Thursday night was a doubleheader for AM. First stop was the Beautiful/Decay party at the Essex House. Lots of mingling occuring as we met up with the crew from Obey, Cerasoli LeBasse, and White Walls/Shooting Gallery. Ron English, Yoskay Yamamoto, Mars-1, Tessar Lo, Nate Frizzell, Dan Obrien, Edwin Ushiro and many more were on hand to guzzle beverages and catch up on […]
After only being able to spend less than an hour at the Art Basel Miami 08 vernissage preview Wednesday night, AM went back to the fair yesterday, and this time, we took our time. For those not familiar with Art Basel, it’s like walking through the world’s biggest museum of modern and contemporary art, except everything is for sale. There are far too many amazing works of art to mention – everything from Picasso to Rothko to Warhol to Richard Prince, so we thought that […]
AM stopped by to visit Jonathan Levine, who was on hand to showcase Shepard Fairey’s work at Scope. Shepard created some gigantic murals to go along with the exclusive stencil works on paper and record albums. Unlike most Shepard Fairey shows where the buyers names are put on a list for a chance to purchase art, Levine made these works available only to the people who attended the show and on a first come-first serve basis. A few hardcore fans arrived at 6am on preview […]
Wednesday night, AM partied with Takashi Murakami and Rolling Stone at the Louis Lounge in South Beach. Takashi certainly knows how to let loose, including his hair! This exclusive event was to celebrate the opening of Murakami’s second Geisai Miami fair. Kaws, Matzu, and Aiko were just a few of the celebrities that were in attendance. The night got reved-up fast and the crowd of VIPs took the floor to party away. Props to Josh Liner Gallery and Gallery Delaive for showing AM fun South […]
Mia was in attendance Tuesday night for “Illuminate,” (previewed/interviewed) her 3-Person show at Corey Helford. As nice as the paintings look online, Mia’s work definitely needs to be seen in person as pictures do not do the work justice. Fans of Mia’s work give proof to this as Mia has once again sold out a show. If you missed the show opening and are local, we encourage you to drop by the gallery, but please note that Illuminate only runs until December 6th. Mia will […]
Scope was our first official stop and it was a whirlwind! We were stuggling to keep up with the sensory overload of abundant artwork. We thought you might like a quick sample of some interesting pieces before we head off to Pulse and Gen ArtÂ Vanguard today. Photos after the jump.
