Here’s another sweet video from the minds at Vernissage TV. This time, they are profiling the Wynwood Walls project that we have been covering all of last week at Art Basel. It was a pretty mind-blowing to see so many large murals from quality artists all in the same location, something that probably doesn’t happen without the influence of Deitch with the backdrop of the premiere art fair in the U.S. Discuss Art Basel here.

As Jeff Soto (covered) was busy creating his contribution to this year’s Primary Flight, AM favorite Ron English was busy working on a mural of his own. Another rendition of his classic “Guernica” tribute, Ron’s hand painted masterpiece features many of his most identifiable characters. As an added bonus, Ron put up some new, colorful wheatpastes, something we haven’t seen him do in quite a while. More pictures after the jump.
Amongst the many things we’ve seen over in Miami this year, perhaps the most talked about piece of work (certainly between the AM crew and our friends out here) was an previously unsold Barry McGee’s “99 bottle” installation over at Deitch Projects booth at Art Basel. Reputed to have sold for a mere 100K at this year’s fair, it would not have been hard, just among collector friends in Miami to come up with the money and then to split the bottles up. Perhaps not […]
One of the highlights of our trip to Miami was definitely seeing this new Mark Ryden piece revealed at the Paul Kasmin Gallery booth at Art Basel. The breathtaking 72″ x 48″ piece “Incarnation” seems to be a happy medium between his new minimalistic style seen at his last solo at Tomio Koyama in Japan and his older imagery. Sold for almost 900K, it appears the market for one of the top artists in the so-called “low brow” movement is still strong. Take a look […]
Showing adjacent to the SCOPE, the Art Asia opened its doors to fair-goers exposing the Art Basel crowd to the special flavor of their region’s art. Featuring art from countries such as Korea, China, Japan, India, Cambodia, Thailand, and Taiwan, the work definitely brought some fresh ideas with its Asian flair. More images after the jump…
There are so many artists getting up at Basel Week Miami this year that it’s hard to keep up with everything. On our list today was Jeff Soto’s (interviewed) mural for Primary Flight. The almost completed piece, although different, is reminiscent of a mural he did in London during his show at StolenSpace in May. In fact, Soto tells us that doing some street work in the UK (the first time in 10 years) started him itching for more outdoor displays of his art like […]
If you enjoyed our first look at Art Basel a couple days ago, you’ll also like this video overview from Vernissage TV. The footage gives a idea as the feel, atmosphere, and cross section of attendees and art from the main fair this year. Look for more from AM as we focus in on specific artists and booths in our upcoming coverage… Discuss Art Basel here.
After opening his epic show last month at PRISM, Barry McGee moved on to Art Basel for his next project. For his Wynwood Walls installation, McGee covered an entire building with his signature geometric patterns, left plenty of tags, trademark imagery, and threw in an overturned car as well, smoke machine and all. AM spent some time salivating over the details on the site all the while documenting everything to share with you! More images after the jump…
AM stopped by “Stages” last night on the final leg of its journey. One of the hottest shows of Art Basel Week opened with many of the artists in attendance including Jose Parla, KAWS, Shepard Fairey (featured), D-zine, Futura, Rossom Crowe, Os Gemeos, Tom Sachs, and Eric White (seen above with his mother – a cancer survivor). The paintings will be auctioned off to benefit LIVESTRONG and the fight against cancer. More pics after the jump…
If you have been following our coverage, you will know that many of our previews this year for Art Basel Week were from the SCOPE fair. This is because many of the galleries and artists we follow decided to make a showing there. We stopped by to take a look today and snapped some pics to share with you all. This large “finger-cutting” installation from Judith Supine certainly held our attention at the New Image Art booth. Take a look at what else caught our […]
