Basel-mania + a secret alleyway (photos)

For most artists at this time of year, Miami is the place to be seen and heard. All artists flock to this city to be seen as part of the Miami scene, a part of Art Basel Miami. #wynwood #artbaselmiami… We love that our fellow artists come here to paint the streets with their unique forms of individual expressions. And as quickly as they come, they will leave… and #wynwood #artbaselmiami becomes a hashtag to remember until next year. Post-basel Miami looks like a ghost town in comparison to the excitement (also traffic, lots of traffic) that Basel weekend brings.  Love Steady Arts lives in Miami. We are here every weekend, ghost town or baseltown. When nobody is looking we paint alleyways and dance in dark corners, because we must. It’s who we are. Our form of self expression IS art, and we can’t help creating it. always.

With Love Steady Arts’ infamous yearly art party “Art Basel Underground” on hiatus until our funding comes through, I have the opportunity to continue doing what I always do (make art, present art, live freely and truly) without stressing the planning of an epic #artbaselmiami event.

On that note.. I went exploring recently in Little Haiti, and found a lovely alleyway with some Deser & friends street art displaying graffiti and nature’s beautiful relationship. When art flows organically out of an artist as their form of expression, I call it an act of nature. Do enjoy these photos, showing art and nature, hand-in-hand, one in the same… . (Photos below)
