3 Day exhibit during Art Basel Miami
In conjunction with the Miami Art Basel and surrounding Art Fairs, we will be presenting THE TAKEOVER. Using our “Elite Delta Force” of artistic leaders to create a unique 8,000 square foot outdoor art exhibition packed with an enormous series of installations/murals. The exhibition will be located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District along with other accompanying art fairs. 20+ artists will paint large mural/installations around 8’ high and 20’ wide each. Each artist will also exhibit smaller artwork in their installation areas. There will be live painting events throughout the exhibition and a full bar and snack area with DC's Own BBQ Kings grilling it up.
Once upon a time Joe Iurato worked as a magazine editor in NYC, where he’d escape into the streets of SoHo during lunch break to explore the art and occasionally contribute some of his own. At the time, stenciling was more of an obsession than a passion. Like every other moment in Joe’s life when his desire to create art was challenged by a strong, "responsible" work ethic, the latter prevailed. But as fate would have it, the two worlds collided after Joe was laid off last year. While the economy fell to pieces and decent jobs were scarce to come by, Joe used every bit of his free time to let his art out and grow creatively. He now applies that same work ethic into developing his craft. While he’s usually found in his garage painting on reclaimed cabinet doors and scrap pieces of wood, he also enjoys painting in the street, where his work is tagged with the name :01. He doesn’t use it as a means to hide his identity – it serves as a reminder to him, and he hopes as a message to others, that it only takes one single second to decide you’re going to move forward, regardless of circumstance or struggle, and never look back.
