Art Basel 2017: Our 15 art crushes

16 December 2017

Every year, all eyes are turned up toward Miami at the beginning of December. For a week, all the art world is meeting in Miami for what has become today the biggest artistic gathering in the world. When Art Basel first came to Miami in 2002, it was a satellite art fair to the Basel, Switzerland main art fair. It’s now the biggest annual art event in North America thanks to the perfect cocktail of palm trees, parties, a surge of interest in art with the Instagram explosion. Today many satellite art fairs have joined the event with the recent No Commission organized by Swizz Beatz, but also Scope, Pulse, Untitled or the Juxtapoz Clubhouse.

In 2009, Wynwood Walls opens its door to urban artists from all around the world to paint the walls of the Wynwood district warehouses. Now Miami as becomes the largest open-air museum showcasing the works of the most talented artists. Today we’re bringing to you our favorites pieces created this year with Nychos, Tristan Eaton, Conor Harrington, Greg Mike, Seth, Sipros Sipros, Trek6, Sonny, Fanakapan, Arlin Graff, Apitatan and the Montrealers Dodo Ose and Ola Volo.
