The Bogota and Los Angeles-based Fabien Castanier Gallery used Basel Week Miami as an opportunity to show their roster of urban artists to the art-thirsty crowd in Wynwood with a popup exhibition. Displayed in two large spaces in the vibrant neighborhood, the exhibition also served as a teaser of what they will are planning for their upcoming Miami gallery location scheduled to open next year.
The show was divided between the large space where works by their artists were on display featuring paintings & sculptures with the smaller space reserved for installations. French artist Thomas Canto took advantage of this with a large abstract installation (seen above) playing with perspective, light and reflection by creating grids and layers of sharp geo forms both on the walls and inside. Some of the other standout works were canvases by Jan Kalab, both the cut out pieces and round piece, an Andrew Schoultz painting with shredded money as background, the Miaz Brothers’ effective take on classic portraiture, and the always powerful sculptures by Mark Jenkins.
The full lineup of featured artists also included Camilo Matiz, Charlie Anderson, Fidia Falaschetti, JonOne, Liu Bolin, Luke Newton, RERO, Speedy Graphito, Stuart Semple, and Tilt.
