// art basel miami : untitled

For all of you artyheads, we are sharing our experience at Art Basel Miami. Art Basel is a convergence of art, fashion, music, not to mention celeb sightings & secret parties, which means no sleep for a week, basically. It is by far the most inspiring setting we’ve ever experienced, & we’re hooked. All senses are illuminated in this summer vacay in December.

Our favorite fair, Untitled, is where we’ll start. Untitled features emerging & mid-career artists from international galleries & non-profit art spaces. It’s doesn’t hurt that it’s a big pink tent right on the beach, either.

Here are some works we saw & loved, & had to report back about!

These incredible colored pencil drawings by Toronto artist Winne Truong combine delicate beauty with the grotesque. They were a truly gorgeous to see in person.

These works by Jared Clark consist of colored resins poured into Styrofoam packaging creating a playful candy-like effect out of this normally discarded, imperishable substance.
