I’m an art explorer enthusiast. I love art fairs and I love Art Basel Miami Beach, America’s biggest art fair.
One of the highlights was that I didn’t have to fly down here. A little more than 30 minutes drive and I found myself exploring, washing my eyes with scenes, some were plain weird, I haven’t seen for a while. There was so much to see my eyes couldn’t catch up with my brain.
Leading international galleries and artists from around the world arrive to Miami to showcase their modern and contemporary art works.
Sculptures, drawings, installations, paintings, photographs, you name it.
– a healthy dose of exhilaration and a fascinating cocktail of art and parties. Although I’ve only attended the art part.
Unlike my previous visits to Art Basel a couple of years ago, this time besides being surrounded by landscape of colorful and outrageous outfits worn by ladies from all over, I was pretty impressed by the art.
Other then the sad fact that someone stole a Picasso drawing artwork estimated around $90,000, everything else went well.
As an artist, to understand a piece of art one must be willing to explore other factors such history even politics, for guiding references. You must free yourself from everything that is common after all art is not only about beauty. The process of art discovery is an opportunity to see and sense it through your “third eye”. It’s an exhilarating experience that lasts in the back of your head for a while, especially if your experience includes not only the discovery of artwork itself, but also the people who came dressed to kill (or to make me blind).
And I agree with that one.
