The Miami Project successfully launched its second rendition during Basel week with a well-curated selection of U.S. galleries, including such notable names as Yossi Milo, Joshua Liner, Mark Moore, Richard Heller and David B.

In recent bodies of work, he has expanded his range beyond painting to include collage and mixed media pieces, so we’re very excited to see what he has in store for this show.
