Guys !!!! The week of “baseling“ it’s here! .

ands in the heart of the MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT right in time for Art Basel and Design Miami. my vision is happy, colourful and creatively collaborative. Such as all the different pieces if you are in town you gotta check out. Art week is a destination for fun through art, fashion and design. Where many people Come for inspiration, discovery, friendly moments and good vibes only!

if you are visiting in town guys come say hi to all the fun activities, and enjoy a week of pure art.

All my recommendations for must-see art this #ArtWeek weekend. I’ve focused on art that’s here only for a flash; unlike the out-of-towners, we can visit the museums after the crowds go home.

Must check out ..


Stroll on up the boardwalk to 18th Street. While The Raleigh is closed for renovation, the surrounding gate opens at 18th Street so you can step into the garden created by Miami’s star landscape architect, Raymond Jungles, and artist/architect to the retail stars, Peter Marino. Kids (and adults too) will get a kick out of the sheep, gorilla, monkey and other creatures created by Les Lalanne, the late artists Claude Lalanne and wife François-Xavier Lalanne.

Located at 1775 Collins Ave.; access from the beach boardwalk. Free.


Continue north on the boardwalk to the 1 Hotel. Enter from Collins Avenue, turn left and head for the bar. Behind it you’ll find the Rainbow Cave installation, artist Basia Goszczynska’s “earthwork” created from 50,000 salvaged plastic bags, said to be equal to the amount used in the state of Florida every four minutes. The installation is meant to explore both the benefits of re-use and color on the human brain. Stop by the concierge desk for a list of other activations throughout the hotel.

1 Hotel, 2341 Collins Ave. Free.

The inflatable vagina.

(The vagina is open to the public through Sunday, Dec. 8. You’re welcome.)

At Nautilus by Arlo on South Beach earlier this week, Spanish clothing designer Desigualpresented its new SS2020 collection in collaboration with Miranda Makaroff.

Yes guys , At this swanky Miami Art Week party, guests entered the vagina, a doorway to paradise, as it were. Inside is a inflatable sculpture of five women involved in an acrobatic erotic activity that requires more energy than most of us possess after a day of walking around looking at art.


Forget Miami Beach and Wynwood. Last year Instagram was crawling with videos from this installation at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden that has nothing to do with Miami Art Week. Why? Because it’s super cool, colorful and doesn’t require a trip over the causeway.


Look what’s hanging out from trees in the Design District: “Pink Beasts” by Fernando Laposse. You’ll also find other temporary installations scattered around.

Happy Baseling!
