With Basel Week Miami mere days away, it’s time to start giving you an idea of what to expect from this year’s event. We recently stopped by the studio of Brian Viveros to check out some of the paintings he will be shipping to the SCOPE Fair that will be displayed at the Thinkspace booth.

Take a look at more photos below as well as learning more about the inspirations behind this piece here. Discuss Camille Rose Garcia here.
