Best Miami Street Art: BSA Picks Awesomest for Basel ’12

BSA Recommends: Where to Hit for the Best Street Art

Art Basel is set to whip Miami into a sea-foamy art-star laden froth this weekend, but art on the street is the unofficial engine that will be keeping it real. No one can doubt that the wave of Street Art, this first global grassroots peoples art movement, is sort of everywhere now, haters be damned.

The ugly streets of the Wynwood District easily get as much traffic as the big commercial art fairs even though there is no guest list or ticket price. It feels remarkably different to see the marbled horde exploring art in the public realm, posing for photos with each other in front of pieces, talking with the artists as they paint, sharing their favorite discoveries on Instagram.  This is the art of this moment, and there is just something more democratic about it all.

Our list, in no particular order, doesn’t even include the main fair actually. Hit the streets!

1. Wynwood Walls
2. Fountain Art Fair
3. The Factory Art Show
4. Scope Fair
5. Pulse
6. Miami Project Art Fair
7. Context
8. Primary Projects
9. BLADE at Adjust Gallery
10. A Box Truck Caravan from Klughaus
11. Snyder “Urban Pop Up Gallery”

We have sifted through the offerings in Miami for 2012, and made some selections to help you see Street Art inside and outside, by brand new artists and some with 40 years in the game.  Take your camera, take your sneakers, and take your love of the creative spirit.

Wynwood Walls

Arguably one of the main reasons that Street Artists began pouring into Miami in the late 2000s, Wynwood Walls opened the streets to the gallery world and increasingly galleries are opening doors to these artists from street. Wynwood Walls founder Tony Goldman would have wanted it that way and is credited by many artists as the first guy to give their art a chance to be seen.

WW doesn’t stop this year even as the recently departed real estate developer will be on many minds, not the least because of the huge wall installation by Shepard Fairey honoring him as a benefactor of the arts.

A well mixed list of internationally known and emerging names are featured on a slightly shorter list this year including: How & Nosm, MOMO, DAZE, Shepard Fairey, Jesse Geller (Nemel, IRAK), Faith47, Daleast, Santiago Rubino, POSE and Kenny Scharf. The out door walls are complemented with an indoor exhibition featuring new works on canvas by AIKO, Logan Hicks, How & Nosm and Futura.

For more information about wall locations and all the artists click here.

Fountain Art Fair

A loosely spun ball of misfits and future art stars, Fountain Art Fair always flies just under the radar of it’s more tony neighbors with its somewhat haphazard staging and the kind of unpretentious collaborative punk flophouse environment that gives rise to many Street Artists on the scene today. If you don’t need your art spoon-fed, you’ll find a link to the future here in the motley D.I.Y. parade. Also, a few really strong talents. As usual Fountain is making certain to spill outside the white box, onto the streets and onto the walls. This year line up of Street Artists painting the Fountain Wall include:

Rone, Australia | LNY, New Jersey | PLF, Atlanta | Trek Matthews, Atlanta | Jaz, Argentina | Elian, Argentina | Ever, Argentina | Dal East, China | Faith 47, South Africa | Molly Rose Freeman, Tennessee | Dustin Spagnola, North Carolina | Pixel Pancho, Italy | Never 2501, Italy | Sam Parker, Atlanta | GILF!, NYC | EnMasse, Canada | Lauren Napolitano, Oakland CA | Joe Iurato, NJ | Anne Preece, LA | Nobody, NYC | Pastel, Argentina | Hec One Love, Miami.

The Factory Art Show

A little more on the commercial tip, Juxtapoz Magazine and its minion are leaders in blasting open minds to help you enjoy delicious tattoo art, graffiti art, Street Art, pop surrealist and dark pop, erotic art, and of course hypnotically animated gifs. Here Jux teams up with Mixed Media Collective to bring you an indoor and outdoor exhibition featuring a left coast imbued view of the street with national and international artists including: 131, Abstrkt, Alex Yanes, Myla (of Dabs & Myla), DALeast, Evoca1, Faith47, Jose Mertz, Lebo, Tatiana Suarez, Toofly, and La Pandilla among others.

Scope Fair

Scope Art Fair is a few steps removed from the street, even as it deeply mines that vein and packages it for sale. Big sale. Usually high quality and undoubtedly commercial, the fair aims for deeper pockets and the art trade while still trying to maintain the accessible, challenging works that accomplished GenX collectors are looking for.  Not surprisingly, artists once known exclusively as Street Artists are all up in there too.

Scope’s roster of galleries includes many that represent Street Artists from around the world including:  Cory Helford Gallery from Culver City, CA will be presenting D*Face and Buff Monster. Galerie Swanström from NYC will be presenting Gilf!  White Walls Gallery from San Fransico, CA. will be presenting C215, Herakut, Augustine Kofie, Logan Hicks and Niels Shoe Meulman. Andenken Gallery / The Garage from Amsterdam, Spoke Art Gallery from San Francisco and Thinkspace from Culver City, CA will also have booths at Scope. Scope Art Fair includes a large variety of programs along with their main exhibition including Red Bull Curates with artists Cosbe and Claw Money among others and Anthony Spinello curates TYPOE.

Pulse

Pulse Art Fair insists on paring works on canvas with art installations as a way to engage the public and make the art viewing experience (and hopefully the art buying experience) far less clinical and more accessible. Detailed, immaculate, and approachable, Pulse is always a must to visit if you are doing the fair circuit. This year as in previous years Pulse has included some of the most important art galleries representing and promoting the work of internationally established Street Artists. Some examples: LeBasse Projects from Culver City, CA will be presenting Herakut, The Joshua Liner Gallery from NYC will be presenting Stephen “ESPO” Powers, and The Jonathan LeVine Gallery from NYC will be presenting a solo exhibition by French Street Artist and tilest INVADER.

Miami Project Art Fair

One to watch, The Miami Project Art Fair originates from peeps in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and has about 70 galleries in its inaugural showing with contemporary and modern art offerings.  We expect this fair to provide the already charged air with an extra bolt of energy. One worth hitting is the Cooper Cole Gallery from Toronto, Canada will be presenting Brooklyn’s own Maya Hayuk.

Context

Context is one of the newest fairs, and will feature French Street Artists RERO and Speedy Graphito, represented by the Fabien Castanier Gallery from Studio City, CA.

Primary Projects

Honorable mention here for the originators of the Wynwood outdoor graffiti (and Street Art) exhibitions that pre-date the official Wynwood Walls and were run on a shoelace budget and lots of hustle, Primary Flight. This year as a gallery project they have refocused their scope and present a full installation by multidisciplinary artist Kenton Parker. He is planning to bring his “Taco Shop” to the 8th floor of the Soho Beach House in Miami Beach.

From the Primary Flight press release: “How do you encapsulate the underground, past-midnight culture of Los Angeles into a single structure? For multimedia artist Kenton Parker, his establishment stationed outside the fashionable Las Palmas nightclub brings the beautiful people back to their basic needs; everyone pays the same dollar for the same after-party, hangover fare. Sharply crafted from tile mosaic, Parker’s standalone shop offers patrons everything from sodas to recovered fake Louis Vuitton wallets, from spray paint to Nerds candy boxes”

ALSO HAPPENING IN MIAMI THIS WEEKEND:

In addition to the perhaps 100 or so Street Artists participating this year in the established art fairs and galleries, there will be dozens of installations outside the sanctioned venues. So far Miami is still in love with it all – both legal and illegal installations provide the essential ethos of an art world invasion. Without these artists and independent stagings away of the glitzy openings and glare of cameras, these art fairs and  just feel like “commerce”.  Some other gigs to check out :

BLADE at Adjust Gallery

Adjust Gallery in Miami will be hosting an exhibition of legendary Graffiti New York artist BLADE. Vernissage: December 6 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Adjust Gallery Miami, 150 NW 24th Ave (305) 458-2801.

A Box Truck Caravan from Klughaus

Klauhhaus Gallery has been mounting some of the best graffiti/Street Art/tattoo/low brow shows in NYC since the gallery opened in Chinatown in 2011. We give it up for these ruggedly smart idea people who will be making their inaugural trip to Miami. With a caravan of box trucks parked strategically in the Wynwood Arts District their artists will be live painting on the trucks and the trucks will parade around showcasing a mobile gallery as the trucks will in fact be moving canvases. The trucks will feature art by: RIME, TOPER, DCEVE, WANE, SP, CES, OBLVN, STAE2, GOREY among others.

Snyder “Urban Pop Up Gallery”

And finally there is Snyder, who is just one of the intrepid D.I.Y. artists who inspire you with their will to succeed – even without being plugged in to the scene. From the artist’s press release: “Snyder, a Southern California based street artist, will be installing his ‘Urban Pop Up Gallery’ in the streets of Miami. With no contacts, no pre-arranged walls, no assistants and in a city never previously visited, Snyder attempts to install 30+ pieces of art in the streets of Miami over a 7 day period, ultimately curating his 2nd large scale ‘Urban Pop Up Gallery”.

Ceilee Sitt Presents: TMNK Nobody “Modern Urbanisms” (Manhattan, NY)

Nobody
brooklyn-street-art-TMNK-nobody

TMNK aka “The Me Nobody Knows” – Artist
Profile and Interview
In occasion of the opening of TMNK aka “The Me Nobody Knows” exhibition in Milan, we contacted Nobody asking for an interview. Alessandro met him here in New York City and spent some time talking to him.

Check out his profile and interview. You can read TMNK’s blog and view his phenomenal and original artwork posted on his website.

Photographer, painter, music producer, tattoo artist, Nobody is an artist whose creative abilities defy pre-conceived labels.
He began his career as a talented fashion photographer, when he found himself in Paris photographing the designers’ collections for Essence Magazine. He has received national recognition for his digital editorial illustrations.

More interested in making art than making a name for himself, Nobody began his extraordinary artistic production outside the influence of the art galleries world.
Showing his poignant, provocative, and bold art under the moniker of “The Me Nobody Knows” or simply “NOBODY”, he deliberately used the pseudonym to emphazise his similarity with the other talented artists in this community ignored by the art
world.

In the great tradition of synergies among artists which reveals the desire of contaminating their art, the collaboration with his fellow street artists (Avone, Ski, 2Esae) has brought to life works of great intensity.

A Soho-born street factory that considers the Big Apple sidewalks as the only possible stage, these artists collaborate without ever losing their own individual perspective and their own creative message.

Nobody likes to refer to his unique paintings as urban hieroglyphics. Constructing, assembling, deconstructing, painting, and scratching on any surface he can find, his paintings are modern-day cave drawings, offering reflections, observations, and discussions that the viewer is invited to join.

Nobody’s mix media paintings have drawn the attention of international curators, collectors, celebrities and even other artists! Well-known raw artist Gus Fink had this to say: “I think your one of greatest out there.

I really think you’re work is superb. It’s brilliant…I can’t believe how wonderful your work is. A little bit of Warhol, Basquiat, Picasso and you of course.” (Art in America)

Nobody’s mix of symbols, abstract figurative drawings, words about the current socio-political background, defying any comparison, is uniquely irreverent and poetic at the same time, comprising all the strengths and the depth of the street art.

The artist and the Sosic group (Soho Street Ink Collective) have been invited in Feb 2008 to present their art at the event “Design and Elastic Mind Exhibit” at MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) of New York

AS: Do you often work together with other artists?
TMNK: Sometimes. I’m always open to learning from and working with other artists.

AS: How much are you influenced by New York and how much are you influencing New York?
TMNK: New York is the perfect place for an artist like me; its walls resemble the inside of my mind. A myriad of messages, thoughts, and images pervade the urban landscape. Somehow these impressions are  filtered out and onto the canvas by me in a way that some have connected with. Me Influencing New York? ! Hell yeah. But why thinking so limited. I hope I am influencing the world.

AS: What will be your next step in the art biz?
TMNK: That’s classified information. NOBODY KNOWS (wink). What I do know is that I am chasing Picasso.
That is to say, I am focusing on developing a workman’s like discipline. I hope one day, to have as many credible works as the maestro. But along the way I hope to have conversations with the world it won’t soon forget. My concern with business is only in as much as I need to make money to
survive. But as an artist, I think like Van Gough or Leonardo Da Vinci. I’m constantly looking inward and outward to see what  I can discover.

AS: Any comment about the new president Obama?
TMNK: The Book of American History has a new cover, it will be up to the hearts and souls of each of us to write new chapters of humanity, equality, and mutual respect.

AS: Hi Nobody, I know you are very very very busy. Could I ask you few questions?
TMNK: Please man.

AS: What is your philosophical viewpoint behind “Art is my weapon”?
TMNK: I try to find creative solutions to problems. In a world filled with so much hate, violence, and intolerance I use my art as a weapon against these manifestations of ignorance.
Yes, I am maybe nobody, but I am not powerless. I fight back through creative expression.

AS: You consider your paintings as “Modern-day cave drawings”. What is your message to people?
TMNK: Not so much a message, I am simply my sightings and experiences, and my interpretations thereof. I share stories about what I saw/experienced, but I also leave room for the viewer to interpret from their viewpoint. I hope my paintings make future generations think and ask questions. I would love to be a part of a future discussion on politics, economy, culture 100 years from now. I simply paint what’s  in my head and in my soul. I throw my pebble in the pond hoping it ripples outward a great distance, hoping someone  anyone is moved by this disturbance I’ve caused.

AS: Someone compares you to Picasso, Basquiat, and Warhol. What do you think about that?
TMNK: I’m honored, as I respect their work, their talent and their accomplishments. I laugh at those who say my work is just like Basquiat, as it shows their ignorance. They see the crown, and they say aha, he copies Basquiat. And to them I have left a message in my paintings “BDO Me,” Basquiat doesn’t own the crown symbol. But these things are the business of critics and curators.

Copulation Dancing MEETS Extreme Sports

And AMAZING Art & Vector Insanity …MAJOR LAZER

Directed by Eric Wareheim

Edited and Animation by Zachary Johnson & Jeffery Max fatalfarm.com

Art and Vector Insanity by Kevin O’Neill & Karisa Senavitis willworkforgood.org

Produced by Clark Reinking

Says Will Work For Good, “We worked with Eric Wareheim on the aesthetic direction for his video for Major Lazer’s “Pon De Floor” featuring some of NY’s raddest dagga dancers. We wanted to take them off the typical club floor and put them on more mundane floors in an imaginary neighborhood where they could go about their business in private. All of the home environments were created as large paintings which were then photographed and transformed into a bizarre real estate fly-through by the dudes at Fatal Farm. Additionally we created a series of vector patterns used for the “otherworlds” featured throughout the video. All in all a sick mix of low/high tech and Eric’s always awesome visions.”

“Street Crush” coming up Feb 13 at Alphabeta

Whassup Brooklyn!

This show is going to be off the hooker.

It’s for all the fans, that’s you. 42 artists, that’s all we gotta say, and lots of fun because it is all about community, and creativity, and love.

You’ll be hearing more about it as we get closer – in the meantime read all about it here in the calendar.

And In Preparation for Street Crush…

And for those of you who will want to be practicing up on yer def mooves for the Ladaays of the Eightaaays – here is an instructional video below. Stand up in front of your computer please and practice according to the directions.

I only needed like two minutes and I totally got it. Some other people (no names please, people) may want to view it in it’s entirety.
