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.
The INK Miami Art Fair, established in 2006, draws museum directors, curators and committed collectors of works on paper.
All exhibitors are members of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) and are selected among members of the Association for their outstanding ability to offer collectors a diverse survey of 20th century masterworks and just published editions by leading contemporary artists.
The Vasari Project, founded in 2000 by the Miami-Dade Public Library System’s Art Services and Exhibitions Department, is a collection of printed materials and items of ephemera that document the history of art in Miami.
For its 40th anniversary installment, The Vasari Project presents From Ephemeral to Enduring: Stories and Histories through Scrapbooks, Notebooks, Journal Books and More.
