Our heroes Harlan, Lori and Abner Preis weren’t the only ones in Miami this December. Kid Acne, Will Barras, EMA, TLP, Galo, Pixel Pancho, Ephameron, Mr. Jago, Logan Hicks and many others were invited to Primary Flight to transform and design in the Wynwood Districts into their very own canvas.
“Primary Flight is Miami’s original open air museum and street level mural installation that takes place annually throughout the Wynwood Arts District and the Miami Design District. Primary Flight is arguably the world’s largest event of its kind, having featured over 250 world class artists from around the globe since its inception, the majority of whom travel to Miami during Art Basel. Artists from all walks of contemporary art headline our annual event, collaborating on high profile walls throughout Miami’s urban landscape.”
This year Primary Flight welcomed approximately 150 artist to Miami this Basel. Primary Flight launched its new space, “Primary Projects,” with a solo exhibition by Retna (Marquis Lewis). The breakout artist is quickly rising, named one of Basel’s top five most important artists by Esquire magazine.
Trusto Corp, whose mission is “dedicated to highlighting the hypocrisy and hilarity of human behavior through sarcasm and satire,” produced an interactive circus in Cafeina’s lot. Common products, brands and games were given new meaning under this group’s warped, artful eyes, while artists Ron English, Tristan Easton, Reyes, Mr. Jago, Bask, Tes One, Tatiana Suarez and more created larger-than-life murals.
