Holy shit balls! It’s getting hot in here!As temperatures continue to steadily rise in the 305, The Vagabond, Gummdrops, Alley Times, and, yours truly, Tropicult are launching a rockin’ Summer Concert Series this Friday night!
The shindig should set the tone for more super fun local hangs and a badass summer. Headlining all the festivities are two of Miami’s hottest local bands, Deaf Poets and Lil Daggers, together on the same night.
That ain’t it!! Charlie Woods will be dropping a special DJ set and all of the dudes from KRiSP are expected to attend. Plus, pop-up shops by our local favs, installations, BBQ, even one of Miami’s most recognized street artist, Atomik will be out there doing his thing!!
MXYTSPLYK is a man. A man of small words. A man of no words.
A couple of years ago, when I first moved to the Design District/Wynwood area, the now demolished Chiquita Banana Plant (above) was still on NE 2nd and 33rd street. The plant particularly caught my eye because back then we were developing the “tropi” brand and banana’s were one of the symbols we initially used to associate it.
As I got to know the locals, I discovered that the Chiquita Banana Plant I had my eyes on had been hit up by a local artist. I’ve gotten to know the artist and have been following his sketches, photography, and street art ever since.
And so, it is without further ado that I introduce to you MXYTSPLYK.
My homie Ahol Sniffs Glue has been killing it in the digital realm with his #BiscayneWorld series of virtual artwork.
As always, he’s been keeping it real. The digital artwork reaches out through multiple platforms to our generation of millennials. It is an observance of the real Miami (and its peoples) otherwise hidden beneath the magic and disco dust that sweeps through the city.
Now that we’ve caught our breath, we put together a Miami Art Week 2012 Retrospective - a series of photos and galleries that capture some of our favorite events and artworks.
This collection of photographs only captures a small fragment of what went down in Miami the first week of December. But hey, they say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here’s a short story…enjoy!
Hit & Run, opening this Thursday, August 9th at Gregg Shienbaum Gallery in Wynwood, is a retrospective of AholSniffsGlue’s work.
The exhibition features pieces that date back to and before his official debut at Butter Gallery two years ago and includes his memorable characters and infamous eyeballs along with more recent works, some never seen before.
