It featured photographs, paintings, and sculptures by some of the best artists in world, including Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, and Elizabeth Peyton. See more images from the booth after the jump…
This year’s Basel Week Miami wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Aqua Art Miami fair in the Wynwood district. Chock full of visual goodies from galleries we know and love to some newly discovered ones that are now on the AM radar. It was treat to experience some great art at this fair. Check out all the images including several pieces from Jin Young Yu (interviewed & seen above) after the jump.
Sometimes, it takes stepping out of your comfort zone to get a fresh perspective on the way one views art. That is what Pulse did for us in Miami. From the moment we entered the fair, we noticed many galleries and artists that we weren’t accustomed to viewing. We constantly found ourselves stopping and asking more questions about “what is that?” and “who made it?” than any other fair during Art Basel Week. A truly rewarding experience. Check out all the visual nuggets we dug up after […]
As many art fans know, art isn’t just about the finished product; it’s often the process and inspiration that it draws from. Unlike their previous art fairs, Mizuma Gallery focused it efforts at Art Basel with a solo project from Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba entitled “Breathing is Free: 12,756.3- Ho Chi Minh City 118.3 km.” This unique series of work focuses on Jun physically running 12,756 Kilometers – the diameter of the earth – utilizing a wrist GPS as he runs and via the magic of a […]
The AM crew stopped by the SCOPE Fair to take a look at the geometric paper sculptures by Jen Stark during Art Basel Week. The Miami-based artist was showing off her eye-catching pieces of what appear to be precise paper cutouts at the Carol Jazzar Gallery booth. Even after staring at her work for a long while, we still could not really figure out how she was able produce such complex creations. See for yourself, after the jump…

In addition to the multitudes of already established and successful street artists working Primary Flight this year, AM managed to score a couple hours with the ever mysterious TrustoCorp as the enigmatic entity bolted up their trusty brand of altered and hand painted street signage. Following a successful blanketing of New York City’s financial district, TrustoCorp trucked down to Miami leaving a trail of subversive signs in their wake. From what TrustoCorp told us, expect a pretty intense nationwide campaign to come to a city […]
When down in Miami for Art Basel, we went with our friends The Art Collectors to the Bass Museum of Art to see the exhibition by Chicago-based artist Dzine. Suffice to say that Dzine truly brought it for this museum show, which included eye-popping installations and paintings, proving that he is an artist to watch. As always, The Art Collectors has written up an intelligent and in-depth post with extensive photos, so check it out here. Discuss Art Basel week here.
As you wonder through the endless booths at all the different fairs at Art Basel, you often chance on some unexpected new artists. One of those moments for us this year was San Francisco-based Misa Inaoka and her mutant bird sculptures exhibiting with Johansson Projects at the NADA art fair. Not only did each unique sculpture seem to be created from some strange animal part junkyard, but the pieces had motorized joints and twisted intermittently. More images after the jump…
While at this year’s Art Basel and Primary Flight, one of our goals here at AM was not just to bring you great on-site coverage of your favorite artists, but also to find, discover, and help promote the next batch of young and exciting artists ready to make a splash on the scene. AM is proud to present to you Tati Suarez, a 26 year old Miami artist, though soon to be Brooklynite, who caught our attention quietly painting in a tucked away corner of […]
