Every year during Art Basel this industrial section of Miami hosts a sizeable amount of walls to artists of all kinds, the majority being street artists and graffiti writers.

Illustration // Tuesday, November 19, 2013
"Joy and the adorably gross sit comfortably together in the world designed by Tuomas Ikonen. Whether it's a brain taking a stroll or a two-headed worlf taking on a bunch of snakes, it's the fun mix of light and dark that keeps Tuomas' work light-hearted." Based in Finland, Ikonen imbues the digital medium with a wonderful level of tactility, creating artwork that is incredibly clean while feeling almost hand-made.
