Art Basel 2014

Every year, I religiously make the pilgrimage to the annual Super Bowl of the art world, Art Basel Miami Beach. For those not familiar with the show, it is a display of galleries from all over the world showing sculptures, paintings, prints, photography, installations, videos by world-renowned artists such as Picasso and new artists alike. As an artist and a fervent art lover, it is a honor and a privilege, a day of obligation and a must attend, an appreciation of other’s work and a little “I am checking you out to see what you got” of sorts, to attend the gathering. Luckily, I don’t have to travel far as exercising patience is paramount on the streets leading up to the event but in the end, it is immaterial, as the joy one gets supersedes all the migraine and more. It is that worth it.

I never get to adventure to Art Miami or Miami Design and many others. I should. I am sure they are as great but Art Basel caterpillars it all. It is the emblem. As many times as I have been to the show, you would think that I am done being surprised but I always find myself saying, “Oh wow. Whoa.” and then “Oh, I can do this. My work is better. Is this art? Huh?!” Price tag, who needs to know? It is not for the faint of heart. It is creativity in motion. Enjoy!
