Art Basel 2010 Day 4
Alright everybody here is my final post for Art Basel 2010. Man I took a million photo during the last day. This awesome Sunday started out with me and Robert going to the Nike Destroyer tour stop at Mr. Sports on Lincoln Road. After Robert copped a Destroyer Jacket and got it customized we grabbed some food at Paul's and headed to the Sanrio Small Gift Pop Up Store in Wynwood. The pop up store, tattoo parlor and gallery exhibit was put on and curated by Zio Fulcher and Roger Gastman who you might know from Banksys Exit threw the gift shop Documentary. Super cool guy. After checking out the whole exhibit we grabbed some shaved ice and headed to see our friend Tatiana's mural that she did for Primary Flight. Saw a lot of dope productions on the way.
Dedication right here. The pop up store was giving away free tattoos, and this being the last day of the store these girls had been waiting since 5 in the a.m. to get a tattoo. Crazy.
After we play some of the fresh carney games we headed to Scope and Art Asia in Wynwood.
Scope and Art Asia were not as good this year. I was feeling last years work better. We ended the night by going to Bar for a dope Adidas event that had performances by Aloe Blacc and Peanutbutter Wolf. The event also gave away free custom tees created by these guys called Hit + Run who do silk screening events and parties.
This Art Basel was probably the best Art Basel I've ever participated in. Even though I had a lot of headaches this year it was filled with good times and friends and to end it all I got to have a conversation with one of my biggest hero's Shepard Fairey aka OBEY. Its always an awesome feeling to meet one of your biggest Idols and there not an asshole. This guy was so polite and humble, I now have even more respect and admiration for him which I don't even know how that's possible. Next year I'm taking the whole week off. Basel is getting way too big to see it all at night and during the weekend. I hope everyone enjoyed these past couple of post. Peace.
