It is 48 hours post-Basel and I am finally starting to feel like my normal self again. By day 7 I had gotten so sick that I had to spend half of the time sitting down but it seems that now I am getting 8 hours of sleep and eating regularly my body is starting to forgive me for working like a mad woman. There is however some great news to come about this experience I had at SCOPE but it will have to wait for now. In the meantime let me give you a bit of a rundown of my experience during my last days of Art Basel: I was within arms reach of Rick Owens and his marvelous wife, I got some super sick magazines that will be getting their own post very very soon, made many new friends were met and old ones reunited, the art was marvelous and I am feeling more ready for New York than ever before. This week is my last week in Miami before I graduate and leave for the Big Apple so I am trying to spend as much quality time with my friends as possible since I'm not sure the next time I will be able to come to Miami again. Bittersweet. On Wednesday I will be attending the BFA juried exhibition reception that I was selected for by David Castillo so if any of you are in town and want to see some inspiring up and coming art please come out, there will be free booze and cool people, you can find the flyer below. Other than that I have collected all of the best snapshots that I managed to take in-between working, my sincerest apologies if they really aren't that good but I thought I'd rather show you that than nothing at all.

Un-related to my SCOPE experience below is some art painted by the very talented Jesus Caseres from photos that I took with Octopustudio over 2 years ago.
He recently posted them on his instagram and I thought they were too beautiful not to share.

And for those of you that are going to be in town on Wednesday please come by the Frost Art Museum to support the graduating artists of FIU.
