Basel-ed Out. Still.

For many, ART BASEL Miami is a massive PARTY. For some who are not buyers, yet MASSIVE fans of truly GREAT ART… this may have been the most exhausting but incredibly exciting week for you. And now that it’s over, we all still need a vacation.

But let’s not forget the art that we saw that came in from every corner of the earth. Here are some images we captured from galleries all across Basel…And we LOVED every minute of it!

Check it out!

I mean, is this not spectacular??? AND this is only a few of the hundreds of thousands of artists shown. And not only that, this is like .000000001% of the art shown.

Spectacular is an understatement. Was it worth the exhaustion? ABSOLUTELY. I would do it all over again in a he(ART)beat.

Well kids,

Have a FAB Holiday and New Years!

Yayoi Kusama – Accumulation Sculptures aka “Sea Creatures” and Paintings @ Victoria Miro

The renowned Japanese Artist Yayoi Kusama work’s are currently on exhibition UPSTAIRS at Victoria Miro Gallery. For starters, these works are KOOKY. The artist who recently collaborated with Louis Vuitton adds 7 NEW sculptures (which some could interpret as phallic while personally to me they look like sea creatures) to her Accumulation Series (which she started in the 1960s). The sculptures are surrounded by 12 of her paintings that are vibrant, energetic, and full of life, radiating brilliant colours, various patterns and biomorphic shapes. Kusama’s signature is that of the ever so classy polka-dot which can not only be found in her paintings, but also on the protrusions of her phallic “sea creature” sculptures. Remember, art is what you make of it. Look at it… what do you sea?

The exhibition runs until the 25th of May. I HIGHLY suggest you journey over to Hackney and check it out!
