& 2,000 artists are going to be represented, The Art Basel in Miami, December 2nd to the 5th.

Since the P&P crew cannot attend with huge sadness….

I bring to you some previews & researched greatness that is in the forecast for this years show!

 

With an installation of a 8,000 square feet pop-up store, Hello Kitty is celebrating their 50th anniversary with 50 internationally-recognized artists exhibiting their original works inspired by their fave Sanrio characters.

With a collaboration with one of the most recognized street artists, Obey’s Shepard Fairey, as well as his own wall installation.

NOWNESS released their first video as part of a series detailing various artists participating in the popular art event, as seen here with KAWS.

 

 

Rainbow City is an environmental installation made by FriendsWithYou, it presents a vibrant collection of mutable, air-filled sculptures & a surreal landscape of psychedelic scenery.

During interaction, the inflated sculptures “embrace” visitors, while repetitive sound elements further enhance the sensory experience.

Ron English has been in Florida earlier than most, and has now completed his wall as part of the Wynwood Walls exhibition.

 

Hi-Fructose landed in Miami earlier today rushing directly from the airport to the Miami Convention Center.

&  snapped some amazing pictures of my likes from, Barry McGee, Yoshimoto Nara, Takashi Murakami,

Lari Pittman & the twin duo Os Gemeos.

ART ASIA is back for a third year & it’s most prominent artists, Liu Bolin  known as the “Invisible Man” will incorporate himself in life-camouflage style to match complex backgrounds.

GENIUS!

The STUCK UP wall is a sticker fanatic’s dream come true.

“The Sticker Wall” invites artists as well as the general public to contribute to the wall by adding their own stickers.

Aranda\Lasch collaborate with a FENDI craftsman on the instillation “Modern Primitives,” to create fractal, foam pieces that can be leaned on or used as seating.

I could go on & on & feature thousands of interesting pieces, but at the end of the day, selectism has taken the best of me…
