An art fair we always check out while we are in town for Basel Week Miami is the sister fair of SCOPE – Art Asia. While there perusing gems from the Far East, we are sure to come upon new names to follow as well as catch up with more familiar artists. This year, the sculptures of Qin Weihong (above) caught our eye as well as much of the other talent on display. Take a look at all the photos below… Discuss Basel Week Miami here.

This morning, we stopped by to check out one of the other satellite fairs in Miami – SCOPE. The large complex featured many of the galleries and artists that we are familiar with as well as some new discoveries. Also attached to the fair was its usual partner – Art Asia which we will cover in a followup article. For now, check out all the images including a stunning portrait from Sas Christian (ab0ve).

While AM has been running around at all the various fairs, we have also been monitoring the street activity, which continues to be strong during this year’s Basel Week Miami. One of the murals that caught our eye was the collaboration between Dabs Myla, Greg “Craola” Simkins, and Witnes in the Wynwood Walls area sponsored by LRG. Check this worthy addition to the Miami landscape below – too bad there are cars in the way… Discuss Basel Week Miami here.
Despite with the brazen display of jacked Banksy’s at the new CONTEXT Art Miami, there was a pretty good selection of work displayed. As with most fairs, there were artists that we recognized which have been featured on the pages of AM before and also new artists to be discovered that we were excited about. For example, check out the Jorge Santos piece (seen above) that was at the 101/Exhibit booth (more on the rest of their lineup later). For, now enjoy a overview of […]
Sure to rile up true street art fans everywhere, the CONTEXT Art Miami fair has gone ahead and approved the display of works purported to be pieces from Banksy (no Pest Control authentication obviously) taken from around the world (Israel, England, Los Angeles and San Francisco). Arranged by gallerist Stephan Keszler of Southampton, the works are placed strategically throughout the complex of tents, perhaps used by the fair to garner attention as it is a new offshoot of Art Miami. The showing appears to attempt to deflect blame […]
With the press preview this morning opening up the main fair at Basel Week Miami, the crew at AM headed to South Beach to check out all the blue-chip galleries and their offerings for 2012. Although there is an overwhelming of art to show you, we have start somewhere and this year it is the Michael Kohn booth. Check out their varied selections of work including a meat sculpture from Mark Ryden, a beautiful new painting from Camille Rose Garcia, as well as works from […]
Earlier this evening, AM stopped by Wynwood Walls to check out the opening of the Time Evaporates, Emotion Elevates group exhibition inside the new Nicewalk Gallery space. The show featured backlit lenticular paintings (or photos) alongside some original works from selected artists (Aiko, Ron English, Swoon, How & Nosm, Logan Hicks, Kenny Scharf, Futura) who have painted murals at the complex. The title comes from a quote from Tony Goldman (founder of Wynwood Walls), who recently passed, with whom many of the artists included had an especially […]
Like the ArtPadSF in San Francisco earlier this year (covered), Scott Scheidly will be showing more works from his series of unusual portraits – this time at the SCOPE art fair in Miami (part of Basel Week Miami). The Orlando-based Schneidly will be one of the featured artists at the Spoke Art booth (along with Jessica Hess), so head over if you are in town to check out his tyrants, dictators, and other pop culture icons re-imagined in a different context.

With various members of AM heading to Basel Week Miami as we speak, we’ll continue to preview some of the art that we will be checking out later this week. One of the booths packed with goodness at the PULSE fair will hold offerings from the Joshua Liner Gallery in the form of art from artists David Ellis, Evan Hecox, Ian Francis, Kris Kuksi (above), Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, Stephen Powers, Tomokazu Matsuyama, and Tony Curanaj.
