Art Miami 2015

More on my trip to Florida a few weeks ago; we took a roadtrip to Miami from Orlando. The purpose of the trip really was to visit my father and a few friends we have, but to my luck we arrived during Miami Art Week. The city was buzzing with celebrities, bloggers, artists, etc. I had no idea, but my father had obtained VIP access to Art Miami, which is basically the famous Art Basel’s counterpart, with a deeper focus on the actual art over the social aspect of the events. We were able to view, firsthand, hundreds of pieces of Contemporary and Modern art from galleries around the entire world. My favorite pieces, were, of course, those with a fashion inclination. 
We also crossed the street to the Context tent. Context is the sister of Art Miami, which is dedicated to highlight emerging artists presenting cutting edge, technology driven art. I was blown away! It was all so fascinating! We ended up at the famous Wynwood Walls, which is a huge block of walls that are covered in murals painted mostly in Graffiti. It’s no surprise that I gravitated towards the Lotus wall, but it was all fantastic. Swarms of people, tourists and locals, flooded the streets of Wynwood to enjoy the art and after parties for a super fun night in Miami.
Más sobre mi viaje a Florida hace unas semanas atrás, donde tomamos un viaje en carro desde Orlando hasta Miami. El propósito real era visitar a mi padre y varias amistades, pero para nuestra suerte, la visita coincidió con la semana de Arte en Miami. La ciudad vibraba con la energía de celebridades, bloguer@s, artistas, etc. Yo no tenía la menor idea de que mi padre había conseguido taquillas VIP para asistir al evento de Art Miami, la contraparte del famoso Art Basel, pero con un enfoque más en el arte sobre el aspecto social de los eventos. Pudimos ver, de primera mano, cientos de piezas de arte Contemporáneo y Moderno proveniente de todas partes del Mundo. Claro, mis piezas favoritas eran de inclinación a la moda.
También cruzamos la calle a la carpa de Context, la hermana de Art Miami, dedicado a resaltar artistas emergentes presentando arte de última tecnología. Me impresionó de sobremanera! Todo era tan fascinante! Terminamos en el área de las Wynwood Walls, que es un segmento enorme de murales, mayormente pintado en Graffiti. No debe ser sorpresa que me atrajo la pared del Loto, pero todo estaba bien bonito. Miles de personas, turistas y locales por igual, llenaban las calles de Wynwood para disfrutar del arte y las festividades para una noche divertida en Miami.
