For November's art walk, the streets of Wynwood unleashed a flood of visuals before the full climax of Art Basel. It felt good, it felt right, and our shoes are still sticky. Check out some of the stuff we saw, and tell us about whatever we missed, sometimes there's just too much, and you've gotta save something for next time.
People are funny looking. Over at the University of Miami's Wynwood Project Space artist Ricardo Zulueta showed great blown up portraits of humans posed in their (actually the artist's collection of) underwear. According to the artist, that dude on the left with the fanny pack
wrote a bunch of gangster music as the scoremeister (yeah, composer) worked as a "sound director" for some Martin Scorcese films.
American work. They showed five artists and the pure white lighting in the joint is
and the TM Sisters.
The Miguel Paredes hype machine that keeps his gallery perpetually full
is a good addition to the neighborhood, and the guy does some pretty awesome
work, like this Scottish Samurai.
Tattoo and graff heads will definitely appreciate the newly opened Evl World gallery which has all kinds of photo, mixed media, and paint work inspired by the streets and presented alongside the likes of this voodoo bear.
And the Grill Master Café truck was doin their thing.
We walked up NW 2nd Ave drink in hand and not a single cop harassed us....felt like a Nas song (If I ruled The World) except with liquor instead of weed. The lady at Gallery ID asked us not to stand too close to the Bobby O'Neill Freedom Town prints on display lest we mess them up. Good advice and great exhibit.
The best installation we saw was at NOW Contemporary Art where Federico Uribe's "Once Upon A Time" transforms a warehouse into a forest where trees are made of books that are made of trees. Fuckin awesome.
