Little Haiti (Art Basel 2015)

Welcome to the last gallery of our Art Basel 2015 Trip.  The whole experience was a real eye opener and I'll cherish the memories for years to come.  There were ups and downs and even still new revelations coming to light but I wouldn't trade it for the world.  For our last gallery I wanted to take you just north of Wynwood to another part of Miami, Little Haiti.  Little Haiti (named for its large Haitian population) in my estimation is where the future of street art in Miami will be centered.  The big thing I learned from Art Basel is that as great as Wynwood is, every year things become more commercialized, the art becomes devalued by building owners who insist on covering amazing pieces with new art for no other reason than Basel itself and the cash grab that goes with it.   I hope for the best for Wynwood but you can already see that the big artists are leaving.  The reality is that artists who normally would charge tens of thousands of dollars for a piece to Wynwood and fund their own projects.  The owners have very little appreciation for this and instead just see dollar signs.  Little Haiti however is a different world entirely and much closer to Los Angeles' South Central.  The art in Little Haiti has beautified the community and in this gallery you'll get a chance to see some of the new work being created there including Dourone at work on a collaboration with Marina Zumi.  I again want to thank everyone who was a part of this Art Basel experience and especially Angelina Christina for bringing me along.  Enjoy!
