I would say this to any artist: 'Don't be repressed in your work, dare to experiment, consider any urge, if in a new direction all the better.' Photographer, Edward Weston
Having spent all of last weekend visiting the galleries and exhibitions that were a part of Art | Basel, the annual international art show here in Miami, I came away feeling deeply inspired. Hundreds of artists and their thousands of artworks, all in three days- now that's a seriously humbling and introspective experience. It's encountering new and international art that encourages us to explore new concepts, color palettes, compositions, ways to see and even live. I left with a mind full of ideas, a heart full of spirit and over a hundred iPhone polaroids. Here's a little taste of the many works that were on view from such diverse artists as Shephard Fairey, Agnus Martin, Kehinde Wiley, Man Ray, Ged Quinn, Arnold Newman, Miguel Paredes, Jean Arp, and of course my favorites Robert Rauschenberg and Edward Weston.
