For the third year, Miami’s OHWOW put on its annual Art Basel Week group exhibition, entitled It Ain’t Fair, which is always a welcome respite from the cubicled craziness of Basel and the other fairs. As in previous years, the show presented a well-curated selection of works by some of today’s most cutting-edge artists, including Scott Campbell, Dan Colen, FriendsWithYou, Phil Frost, Tomoo Gokita, KAWS, Robert Lazzarini, Nate Lowman, Ari Marcopoulos, Barry McGee, Neck Face, José Parlá and Aurel Schmidt. See all the images from It […]
AM caught up with French-born, Brooklyn-based artist Supakitch at his studio and got a sneak peek of a large new body of work slated for his solo show entitled I Was Born to Be Different, opening in mid-December at Galerie Elegance in Taiwan. Supa is an artistic jack of all trades—painter, print-maker, fashion-designer and tattoo artist. He easily switches between mediums, and even more impressive, mixes them with his love of DJ/hip-hop music and Japanese manga & anime, into his own coherent and unique aesthetic, […]
Whether the artists were participating on the legal walls like Primary Flight, Wynwood Walls, Graffiti Gone Global, or just freelancing it, there were certainly many new pieces thrown up for this year’s Art Basel Week Miami. You have already seen us focus in on some work from Ron English, Shepard Fairey, Gaia and Jeff Soto, but check more work in Part I of our overview of the murals. Pics we gathered after the jump…
Much like with the KAWS signing (covered), we informed you earlier in the week that Barry McGee would host a signing for his new book at the Ratio 3 booth during Art Basel Miami Beach. His impressive clusters constructed at the Bay Area booth (covered), much like those at the Roberts & Tilton’s space (covered), served as the perfect backdrop for Barry to spend some time with fans and beautify some copies of his brilliantly assembled book produced by Alleged Press and Damiani Editore. The […]
Another of the many temporary Los Angeles gallery transplants with an impressive booth at Art Basel Miami Beach was Roberts & Tilton (teased). Intriguing work in an array of mediums from Kehinde Wiley, Ed Templeton, Titus Kaphar, Noah Davis, Jimmy Baker, Ai Yamaguchi, Adam Pendleton and Ellen De Meutter were presented in striking fashion. Much like with Ratio 3 (covered), a large chunk of real estate was set aside for Barry McGee to unleash another of his dynamic cluster installations. All told, a solid presentation […]
For those of you who feel photos are not enough for the full Art Basel experience, you will enjoy this new video from Vernissage TV. Although still not quite like being their yourself (we aren’t rubbing it in), the footage can give you an idea of how huge the main fair is and how massive the amount of art involved is.

Unurth recently published a couple new street pieces (with a third huge piece yet to be revealed) from ROA while he was in Los Angeles for his pop up show (covered). We’re sure you can guess that something anatomical is inside this box by the LA River, but take a look at the full reveal after the jump. Also, another piece following the life cycle of mice can be seen outside the gallery space where he showed. And, in case your wondering, wanderlust has hit […]
Thursday morning, AM attended the private preview brunch at Pulse Miami, and with cappuccino and croissant in hand, got a first look at the fair’s impressive selection. The energy was high as eager collectors of emerging and established art filled the venue, and it wasn’t long until red dots began popping up beside snatched-up works throughout the show. Get a first look of images from Pulse Miami, after the jump.
Last night, New Image Art took over South Beach’s Cafeina for a group exhibition (teased) that should prove to be one of the more compelling events of Art Basel Week. As is often the case, Sao Paulo street art sensations Osgemeos stole the show with their heartfelt interpretations of their Brazilian countrymen, always dressed to impress in colorfully patterned attire. A selection of giant canvases, executed flawlessly with spray cans and incorporating the playful imagery and vibrant palette that has become patented by the Twins, […]
