Featured Artist: Alejandro Quincoces

Foggy, hazy and smoggy, the urban landscapes of Alejandro invite you to get dirty and enjoy the flawed city, before it’s gone for good. Roads and power lines are chicken scratched suggestions, muted colors and abstracted shapes recall places we might have been or will be going.

Pixel-Pancho_Art-Basel_Streetart_2Every year during Art Basel in Miami many fantastic artists converge to create stunning murals and street art. This year for Art Basel 2014, we thought we’d compile our favorites  of the newest street art. Much of the art is curated by the Wynwood Walls project, a warehouse district that has become a street complex of giant canvases, evolving into the city’s trendiest arts district, since 2009.

Alina Chau

Alina Chau has a light, delicate and whimsical touch, which hearkens us back to  early Sixties poster art – illustrations touched by magic and hope. Youthful innocence and fairy tale kingdoms float softly through her watercolors, often embellished with decorative patterns. There is a unique freedom and positivity to her images, gestural looseness and a contagious childlike love of life. She has an upcoming solo show Voyage, in the Elmwood district of Berkeley, featuring her travel and landscape inspired works.
