SECOND SKIN (24" x 48") Oil on Canvas

I just finished this brand new piece for Gen Art Miami's VANGUARD event, its highly anticipated art exhibition and party during Art Basel. This unprecedented show will feature works from 30 of the most widely recognized, cutting-edge Urban Contemporary and Pop Surrealism artists from around the world.

The exhibition, curated by Francesco LoCastro, is entitled No One Belongs Here More Than You. Housed at Palm Court, 23rd Street just off of Collins in Miami Beach, it will include paintings, sculptures and artist installations and will be complemented by the newest
series of works from Miami artist Lebo, entitled Infinite Echoes and Supersonic Soul Stories.

To celebrate, Gen Art will host one of its legendary parties in the exhibition space on Friday, November 7th, complete with interactive art installations, cocktails, and DJ Ray Milian to keep guests in the groove all night long.

Rooted in a vast array of styles, from pop surrealism and urban contemporary, the exhibition exemplifies global emerging art culture at its finest. Though diverse, the artists and their work present a cohesive force  the most vital part of the complex social structure of the 21st century  that is pushing the envelope of visual perception as we know it.

Among the participating artists from Europe and the United States are:

Adam Wallacavage, AJ Fosik, Alex Gross, Brandt Peters, Chris Ryniak, Colin Christian, Dalek, Dennis Hayes IV, Don Shearer, Ender Delaney, FEEDtank, Francesco LoCastro, Grant Barnhart, Harif Guzman, Heidi Taillefer, Kathie Olivas, Ken Garduno, Korin Faught, Kris Lewis, Lebo, Lola, Maite J. Horta, Matthew Bone, Marcela Aguero, Moki, Nathan Spoor, Ray Caesar, Robert Craig, Sas Christian, and Xiaoqing Ding.
