The Beauty and The Streets pop-up exhibit at the Shelborne Wyndham Grand Hotel (1801 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL) will showcase a rare and interactive view of NY Street Artist Nobody’s conversation about female sensuality, sexuality and beauty in the streets seen through the eyes of Nobody. The exclusive cocktail reception will be held on Thursday, April 30, 2015 from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. Signature drinks will be served by Toast Vodka. Street art has become a global culture and street artist Nobody continues to create poignant socio-political observations and commentaries on the people and events of contemporary society. Each of his creations is a spontaneous, yet cerebral mix of symbols, words, and figures used as devices to leave subtle clues for the viewer to interpret or reinterpret. 

“I am the defiant thread in this great tapestry of life, who has decided to weave instead of being woven, and boldly proclaim myself an artist. My rebellious markers and aerosol cans do not need, nor seek your permission as I converse with generations yet unborn,” says Nobody. “To you I may be a nobody. Then undeterred and unaffected I say to you, ‘Nobody did it!’ as I leave my mark on the world.” 

The artist also has a great love for children, and uses not only his art but also his heart, volunteering his time to Miami non-profits in hopes that children will see the beauty within themselves. On any given day, you will see him whizzing down the streets on his skateboard, on his way to conduct an art workshop for a community youth program.

TMNK says there is beauty in the streets, and he’s on a mission to make sure everyone sees and values this obscure beauty.

Come and learn how to identify your best channels and what sort of posts create the most impact.

How do you know if the platforms you use are where your potential new buyers are? How do you know if the kind of posts you make are appealing to potentially new buyers and fans? This seminar will help you save time and sell more art. As you focus your social media promotional efforts to those that really bring in new buyers and fans, you will see a greater return on your investment. Yes, we will be talking real numbers, how you can find those numbers, and how to understand them.
