We just walked by the building that will house NYC legend, Cope2's Rise To The Occasion that opens tonight, December 1, in the Wynwood District at Art Basel, Miami. Rise is a solo exhibition of new original mixed-media paintings and giclée prints by New York City-based artist. We will have more from the exhibition tomorrow...
This will be Cope 2?s first solo exhibition in The Wynwood Arts District of Miami, which presents a collection of new works that explore the convergence of his signature, bubble letter and distinctive lettering style. Aerosol, enamel and acrylic paints are used, creating an original collection of compositions infused with collages, messages, stylized tags, and symbolic imagery.

The exhibition relates the personal paradigm shifts the artist’s complex and colorfully vibrant world.
