For a first timer, the chaos that is Art Basel Miami is something I imagine those who attend SXSW experience year after year. As with the Austin, Texas week-long festival, there’s simply too much going on. My South Beach hosts were out of commission due to sickness so I was left to fend for myself and go where the winds took me. Here’s a brief slideshow of my five days in Miami.
Here’s your complete guide to Miami Art Week museum exhibits around town.
Artist, Mwanel Pierre-Louis’ latest neo- pop series is composed of artworks that visualize the profound impact technology has had in molding our perspective of the world, and the changes online media has in our interpersonal interactions and everyday lives. Here, Mwanel shares with us a bit about his process, answering a general question that some may have already had about all artists —why make art at all?
Atomik examines the relationships of rivalries and opposition he experiences stemming from the competitive graffiti culture.

Painters have been obsessed with death since the very first artist took the very first breath. (Pretty much everyone else has too, but that’s another story.) But while successive generations of Futilists might’ve chosen to speculate on the finality of it all, the more compelling creatives concern themselves with what happens on the way to The Final Frontier. That of course means life. It also means living. And the lovely decay inherent in the day-to-day.
With so much happening during Miami’s Art Week, it’s never too early to start planning. Since a couple of exhibits are opening this month, you can start getting it on as soon as this as this weekend! Here’s you complete Miami Art Week Museum Guide.
The local art scene, in the geographically clustered area of South Florida, took slightly longer to make it into the mainstream. Having finally done so, a light is shone on the underground talent that worked hard for years to get the scene to where it is. It also means that events are spreading throughout South Florida along with growing excitement for the arts.
Though many may see art and science at odds, they are actually both means for human creativity and exploration. The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science formerly the Miami Science Museum, is interested in developing this concept and has created the Curious Vault Collaborations, inviting artists to collaborate with scientists in order to discover ways to integrate art and science in a non-conventional manner.
Brazilian-born Miami-based artist Ernesto Kunde has found inspiration in the architecture, energy, sunshine and art of Miami since he first relocated to the city just over seven years ago. His paintings have paid homage to Miami ever since. Recently, Kunde has become interested in mangroves and root systems. His first mangrove painting was more of an accident. Kunde paints from photographs he takes when out and about exploring his surroundings and one happened to include mangroves.
