POP International Galleries’ presents an Art Basel Miami Exclusive
New York, NY (December 5, 2012) – Hosting the world's premier art shows for modern and contemporary works, Art Basel Miami brings renowned artists from all over to display from December 6th to December 9th.
During Miami Art Basel, POP International Galleries, in conjunction with LUSTLIST, is presenting a show that’s more than just visually stimulating. Think Big, Believe Bigger - An Epic Tale of the CREATOR is a special one night event being thrown to celebrate the entrepreneurial journey as seen through the eyes of several visual artists on the rise, with musical performer YUNA, street performers Future Force Crew, and DJ Jason Perez. The event takes place at Gallery 212, located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, at 2407 NW 2 AVE (across from Panther Coffee). The gallery doors open on Thursday December 6th for a daytime viewing at 11am and an invite only party will begin that night at 9pm.
POP International will be featuring UR New York, a graffiti and urban art collective from New York City, Arno Elias (of Buddha Bar fame), a multi-talented musician, painter, and photographer from Paris, Miami based artist collective Surface Merchants and Richard Scott, a booming artist from South Africa. Also on display will be works from Miami locals Jenny Perez, Yoni Hertz, and LUXi. Japan based Pop artist, Jay Shogo, will be creating live to the beats of DJ Jason Perez followed by a breathtaking performance by singer / songwriter YUNA. Famed Miami photographer, Stian Roenning, will also be showing his works and designer denim line 1 of K will be providing limited edition merchandise to guests as they debut their new spring line of gear.
The event will be catered by Miami local entrepreneurs Yannis Janssens of Lee & Marie’s Cakery and Kevin Arnoux of El Sandwich Co., as both fit naturally in line with the overall theme of the night. The whole of this event is greater than the sum of its parts creating a cohesive blend of work that is pleasing to the eye and inspiring to the soul. The event encourages people of all ages to pursue their dreams, believing in their own abilities to make the seemingly impossible come vibrantly to life.
Jeff Jaffe, founder and owner of Pop International Galleries’, is the thread that connects each artist, weaving them together as one unique collection. “Each artist or artist collaboration was hand chosen for specific reasons ensuring each style complemented the others,” said Jeff. “Each piece paints a different story but hung together they become one.” Rachael Luxenberg, founder of LUSTLIST, had the vision to bring together entrepreneurs of all kinds to truly celebrate the challenges and successes inherent in following your dream. Both will be on hand for press inquiries during the event.
