3 Day exhibit during Art Basel Miami
In conjunction with Art Basel, Miami and its surrounding Art Fairs, Art Whino will present three exhibitions unified in one space. The focus this year will be to present New Browâ€™s distinct subcultures to the Art Basel world. The custom vinyl exhibit will showcase the premiere artists in this genre. With a series of large scale murals, we will bring street art indoors and accompany each colossal piece with smaller works by each artist. Finally, we will team up with Hope Gallery to bring Quick & Painful. This exhibit will feature the work of more than 15 important artists and designers with backgrounds in fine art, graffiti, and illustration in a unique exhibition where Fine Art becomes tattooed skin. The exhibition will be located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District along with other accompanying art fairs.
Also in front of the exhibit participating artists will be painting Large Scale Murals on the outside of 10 buildings stretching from NW 2nd Ave to NW 5th Ave. Participating Mural artists include Angry Woebots, Pixel Pancho, J*Ryu, KaNO, Jim Mahfood, Josh Taylor, Lou Pimentel, Mauricio Murillo, Tobar, Sket One, Ritzy Periwinkle, Tristan Eaton, Charlie Owens, Czr Prz, Boosher, LEZA ONE, Jeremiah Ketner, Joe Iurato, Steve Lew and Many More!

Mural Show: Large scale has a powerful effect on its viewer, creating an other worldly because of its larger than life size. This mural show allows each artist to take on the challenge of creating a mural piece, providing the viewer the opportunity to see the work like never before. Accompanied by smaller pieces, one is also able to see each artist exhibit as an art installation, where mural and conventional piece work together to bring forward the artist’s point of view.

Custom Vinyl Show: D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) Vinyls are the blank canvas of collectible toys. Starting as a lifeless shape, artists conjure up characters with their creative tools, transforming these figures into unique toys bearing the mark of their creators. While most shows that feature these artists’ D.I.Y.s show several artists’ versions of the same given blank toy, this customized vinyl show will turn the tables by highlighting the work of this medium’s leading artists with various toys. Art Whino will team up with Vinyl Artist, Sket-One to show the countless possibilities explored by these artists; from simply painting the figures such as KidRobot’s Munny, to morphing the collectibles beyond their vinyl beginnings.
