Art From Miami Art Week – Art Basel

Art is such an interesting thing to me, but the one thing that I have always enjoyed about it is that it cannot be defined. Every person’s idea of creativity is completely different. To me  music, writing, photography and design have always been most intriguing, as well as most inspiring. The more I have the opportunity to get to know creative types, the more I tend to pay attention to things outside of my own circle of influence.

One thing I can thank the internet for is being able to see an incredible amount of things that I may have never been afforded otherwise. Miami’s Art Week and more specifically Art Basel has become something I have looked forward to. One day I’ll get to attend but this year wasn’t it. Although there is probably a thousand images that had me in awe while looking through coverage of the event over the last few days. Two things that really stuck with me, most likely because if I could find the creative space and time I would do somethings similar.

Ironically the Skateboard Art from Scope (via CoolHunting) and the Sticker Wall (via Arrested Motion) are neither spectacular, or even beautiful in any way. They are just simple creations that resonate with me because I always have both stickers and a skateboard around me. Someday I’ll have my own sticker wall to have my guests plaster their choice of sticky vinyl to commemorate their visit.
