Art Wynwood invites VIP passholders and press to experience a First View of the highly anticipated Art Wynwood Fair, benefiting The Bass Museum, Miami Beach’s preeminent contemporary art museum, supporting its mission to expand the interpretation of contemporary art, and use art as a catalyst for creativity and positive growth.
Art Wynwood will present Kelly "RISK" Graval with the 2023 Art Wynwood Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award. Regarded as a founder of the West Coast Graffiti movement, LA-based RISK was the first to paint full-color pieces and productions on the city’s freeway, creating the Los Angeles freeway movement, and continues to innovate and shape contemporary art through his work. Presented in partnership with Wynwood Walls, the award recognizes individuals in art whose careers have changed the industry. Previous award recipients include Mel Ramos, Martha Cooper, Shepard Fairey, Logan Hicks, and Ron English.
Presented by Chase Contemporary, RISK’s art will be featured on an outdoor mural at the Fair entrance. He will also debut four new Virtual Reality graffiti prints, which when activated via a phone camera come to life through the screen.
Heitsch Gallery will present four new thought provoking works from artist Eike König. Eike König is a ’world renowned graphic designer‘ and founder & creative director of Berlin-based creative collective HORT. Eike’s artistic work is celebrated for its conceptual, emotional, visual - sometimes playful, but always deliberate approach. Eike is also a professor at the University of Arts, HfG Offenbach.
Galeria Casa Cuadrada will present works by multidisciplinary artist Richard Garet. Two series will be on display, highlighting Garet’s interest in experimenting with media, material, and process; and evoking the fragility of memory and the construction memories from experiences from the world.
