We know Art Basel wrapped up five days ago, which translates to approximately two decades in "blog time," but that's one of the problems with covering an event like Art Basel for a blog isn't it? The pressures of a non-stop deadline doesn't give you the luxury of digesting what you've seen, and there's so much to be seen that there's no way, unless you forgo sleep and adopt some serious stimulant habit, that you're going to be able to blog about it all.

Ironically enough, we first came across AJ Fosik's work on the blog FFFFound and it was practically the first thing we saw as we entered. He cross references taxidermy, folk art (most notably Mexican) and a distinctly modern color palette.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
