In the Wynwood Art District, artist Michael Wein unveiled not one piece but an entire show entitled "ROYGBIV." It was the New Yorker's first-ever solo Miami Art Week presentation and it featured both acrylic and resin paintings as well as large-scale installations. Every work unfurls before the viewer with accessible beauty. His set-up was a must see for those looking beyond the big fairs.
ROYGBIV was Michael Wein’s first solo exhibition during Art Basel. Displaying many facets of the “prism” is symbolic to the way Michael lives his life; beliefs stemming from the fluidity and color of life which associates him with the Growth Mindset. He doesn’t see life’s challenges with one fixed solution. This is how Michael shifts his vision into his work— constantly moving, finding ideas, conversations and concepts that may differ, yet are actually connected.
Art Basel Miami Beach 2017 is just days away and the art world will once again descend upon the city of Miami. Most fairs open December 7th, which leaves you plenty of time to check out the cultural experiences taking place throughout the city. With hundreds of events happening, our editors narrowed it down to 40 we’re really pumped for. From star-studded galas to fashion cocktail parties, most are open to the public unless marked invite only. We’ll be adding more events as they come, so watch this space.
