Tomorrow I hit the record button for two weeks of work in Miami centered around the annual art show, Art Basel Miami. It’s great to be in the old neighborhood and this is without a doubt my favorite time of year in the 305. I am shooting a variety of projects focussing on the artists and exhibitions that will be taking place here, and tomorrow is the kickoff with a video piece on RETNA, a well known visual artist from Los Angeles that is producing a large scale piece in the design district.
While preparing for my shoot tomorrow I watched the following trailer for “Here Comes The Neighborhood” documentary project which highlights the stunning and abundant murals that have flourished in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami. It’s really well done and my hat goes off to the film makers and shooters. Constructed in 2009 for Art Basel Miami, The walls now feature work from over 30 artists including Futura, Shepard Fairey, RETNA, and Kenny Scharf.
Let the fun begin!
