Along with the refreshing cold weather and holidays that arrive in Miami every December, comes a unique weekend known for its artistic cultural development. For a week each year, Miami becomes the world’s hub for everything art. From exclusive créme de la créme v.i.p galleries to amazing live street art, Miami and Miami Beach become crowded with celebrities, art enthusiasts, and connoisseurs looking for the perfect piece to add to their collection.
Art Basel marks the main event of Miami’s world-famous art week where artists, art collectors, art galleries, and basically anything with the word art in it gather to share unique artistic cultural diversity. This year, art week becomes the 17th year the city of Miami has opened its doors to this event.
Over 260 world-renowned art galleries showcase work in Miami and Miami Beach. From a lamp made of soda cans to a 20ft long handcrafted scenic beach canvas, you can definitely find something for every taste during Art Basel weekend. For companies, businesses, and artists this is the perfect opportunity to present themselves to about 50,000 visitors from all over the world. Among those is already famous, luxurious, and art-friendly SLS Hotel in Miami Beach.
SLS Hotel South Beach
If you search the hashtag #slsduck on Instagram, your feed will be covered by one of South Floridas most prominent fixtures’ the SLS Duck. The duck is located in one of Miami’s finest hotels and also one of Miami’s most trendy celebrity stops, the SLS Hotel Miami Beach. This year the hotel took part in the artistic weekend by presenting to the public and visitors their own piece of amazing artwork.
The work consists of a prestigious Lamborghini Aventador with a $400k price tag and one of the art community’s most distinguished artist, Alexander Mijares.
Alexander gives his audience a passenger seat view into his life through his stories represented in each piece of art he creates. Dedication, creativity and his ability to overcome life’s obstacles have positioned Alexander as a prominent artist in the worldwide art community.
Alexander has outdone himself on what has become one of Art Basel’s most photographed works. The Lamborghini Aventador completely covered with Alexander’s famous greenish abstract patterns and shapes was placed in the valet area of the SLS Hotel Miami Beach throughout art week. Onlookers and selfie-takers responded with gasps of astonishment and amazement while others responded with questions to meet the artist, where could they find more of his work, and can they drive the car.
