In case you missed it:BES Films and local artist, Gabriel Gimenez aka GG, recently released a documentary on the blossoming Wynwood artist. BES co-founder and lead cinematographer, Raymond Linares,created a truly local experience that not only promotes GG’s artwork but also exemplifies what makes Wynwood great.
That’s not all! In September, GG also exhibited a few artworks at Wyn317 and created a new mural for DWNTWN Art Days. Last week, GG revealed a pretty sweet collection of T-shirts inspired by the three master artists he admires most – Frida, Basquiat, and Warhol.

It was hot out during the III Points Festival in Wynwood, a weekend dedicated to music, art, and technology. It was so hot that even in the aftermath, an objective view of the III Points experience seems stale. A review would feel forced without acknowledgement of my part in it and the effect massive amounts of sweat have on any recounting of any experience. So the very possibility of traditional journalism died of heat stroke.
We had the pleasure of working with Miami visionary, David Sinopoli, when booking some of Miami’s best bands at Bardot, to moderating the III Points music panel, Musically Speaking(scheduled for October 5th). This mover and shaker has nothing but innovation spewing from his brain – and the best part is that his ideas become realities. We had the opportunity to chat with David Sinopoli and hear what he’s all about in this exclusive “Interview Session.” Check it…
