Ali tribute “Legend Forever” by Mr. Brainwash added to collection

COLLECTION: Stick Together met Mr. Brainwash one breezy December night in 2014 on Miami Beach during Art Basel Miami weekend. His work was being shown with at the Delano, and we were in talks about Max Zorn’s solo show on Fisher Island the following week. Brainwash looked as if he had just walked out from an Exit Through The Gift Shop scene, with the classic fedora hat and that energetic buzz. His plan for the weekend was to install a few hundred Star Wars storm troopers around Miami. (And Stick Together loves storm troopers.)

Despite the controversy and opinion that bubbles up from the art world, Brainwash remains a blue chip for collectors worldwide because of his story, his identity, and his artistic vision. His “Legend Forever” collection sold-out in seconds, on sale less than a week after Muhammad Ali died June 3.

Below is No. 4 of 16 variant works of black and multi-color gradient screen-print on hand torn archival art paper, hand finished by Mr. Brainwash. The print is signed on the front and back, (with COA). Print size: 22.5in x 30in. No. 4 was specifically chosen for its primary colored finish of red, yellow and blue accents and warm gradients.

“Earth Crisis Drop” by Shepard Fairey added to collection

COLLECTION: Stick Together first met Shepard at Wynwood Walls in 2013 when he was working on his feature mural during Art Basel Miami weekend. With a clipboard in one hand, a drink in the other, and a composed and confident stance, he oversaw the progress in a calm and observant manner under the shade of a baseball cap. It was special to see this well-known artist smile and make time for fans while keeping an eye always on the developing work. Andre has a posse, even if the faces change to fit the times.

As a big fan of Shepard Fairey we are very excited to acquire a slice of his “Earth Crisis” series with this outstanding, powerful print. Read more about Fairey’s Earth Crisis exhibition here at Galerie Itinerrance in Paris until July 30, 2016.

We know Fairey is not crazy about buyers reselling his work, and Stick Together is proud to exhibit a series of Fairey prints to fans as part of our private collection for the time being at our upcoming exhibitions.

This print, “Earth Crisis Drop” sold out in seconds, it’s signed by the artist and numbered 405 of 450, 18in x 24in.

BBC at Stick Together booth in Singapore for Max Zorn exclusive

MEDIA: Say what you want about the state of our modern media, but it was pretty gratifying to have a news leader like BBC come by the Stick Together Gallery booth for an exclusive interview with Max Zorn at the Affordable Art Fair Singapore. With lights, camera, action in tow, BBC journalists had an hour-long Q&A session with Max about his inspiration behind his works, how the idea began, and how Singaporeans are reacting to his solo showcase as a featured artist of the art fair.

TED Talks invites Stick Together’s Audrey Sykes and Max Zorn

The global community giant of TED Talks approached Stick Together to present its story and in-house artist Max Zorn to a 400-plus audience at the Technical University of Munich in the name of art and its future. It took hours of practice to get this 15-minute speech down to a tee, memorize it and keep it captivating. Special thanks to the cameraman who refrained from too many close ups — after three back-to-back fairs and little sleep it’s better to get that wide, all-encompassing angle anyway.

Best New Exhibitor, Art Basel Miami weekend wrap up

Award-winning booth at Spectrum Art Fair for Art Basel Miami weekend 2015.

FAIRS: Ask anyone in the industry and they’ll say Art Basel Miami is beautiful, but bananas… a weekend of sleek, shiny, dressed to the 9s Warhol style bananas. The exhibitors, artists, collectors, fair directors, the street artists in Wynwood, the Miami beach hotels, the bars and clubs throughout – it’s about being something everyone is talking about, it’s visual overkill in the most wonderful way, and it’s inspiration, exposure, hand-shaking havoc and artfully adventurous. We at Stick Together just love it.

It’s a positive problem to work with an artist in high enough demand suffering the beauty of always being sold out (Max Zorn is sold out, honestly, all the time). But wow were we thankful to show up fashionably late to Miami with a new collection of Max Zorn in tow. Stick Together rocked and rattled the Miami mainland this year at Spectrum Art Fair with a nearly sold-out booth and accolades aplenty. The booth looked leaner than last year’s break-out Breeder booth at SCOPE (thanks again for the write up Widewalls.ch), and Stick Together won the fair’s Best New Exhibitor award for it.

“Ivory Sky” was featured in the Wall Street Journal as a full-page SPECTRUM Art Fair ad for Art Basel Miami weekend. Brown, red and white packing tape on acrylic glass illuminated with LED custom lightbox. ArtistL Max Zorn. Year: 2015. SOLD

Plus, Max flexed his brain muscle to fill up the booth with fresh work during an already-packed fall of exhibiting and selling, and won Best Artist at the fair for it. And thanks again to Widewalls.ch for ranking Stick Together in the top 10 booths to see at Spectrum out of over 100+.

And to top it off, Spectrum Art air used Max Zorn’s artist “Ivory Sky” as a full-page advertisement in the Wall Street Journal to promote their fair. (And in Stick Together’s opinion, this shows that Max Zorn’s talent and skill at detail and motif can outshine his material of tape on an international audience level…but we knew that already, Max.)

Golden Haze unique work of brown packing tape with hints of red packing tape on acrylic glass illuminated by a custom-framed LED lightbox. Artist: Max Zorn. Year: 2015. SOLD

Stick Together left speechless, again. It wasn’t long ago we were hoisting a DIY exhibition at Wood Tavern and taking sales calls from partygoers at 2am inspired to buy in a late-night gotta-have-it haze in 2013. We tested the waters at SCOPE in 2014, selling to celebrity clients and getting flown to New York for further collector collaborations. And wow, Spectrum Art Fair 2015, you exceeded our expectations on all levels. We will never forget the flurry of buyers, media attention and positive atmosphere. It was an honor to work with you.

Let’s see what 2016 brings Miami!

About the Artists

Max Zorn

With a surgeon’s scalpel for a brush, Max Zorn (NL) is an artist who uses ordinary brown packing tape as his medium and a scalpel as a brush. Rising to fame in 2011 as an urban artist because of his exclusive use of tape art on street lamps, in an impressively short timeline Zorn moved to solo exhibitions and an international resume spanning innovative projects from Art Basel in Hong Kong and Miami to downtown Bangkok and Dubai. Zorn has become established for his freehand craftwork and the vividness of his sepia-toned creations. His ability to shape layers upon layers of tape on acrylic glass that, when illuminated from behind reveal contrasts and warmth, is simply unique. The fusion between the awe of material and intricate detail in craft has led him to the stages of TED Talks, BBC and CNN. With his unmistakable way to compose cinematic settings, Zorn pulls the spectator into his motifs and encourages his audience to continue his story.

Marco “ZED1″ Buressi

ZED1 (IT) hails from Tuscany with an evolution of nostalgic surrealism exhibited on an international level with galleries and urban projects stretching from Tokyo to Wynwood Walls, Miami. His subjects mimic dazed and dreamy marionettes with artistic skills in acrylic and aerosol that transcend from ten-story walls to delicate works on paper and canvas, keeping each piece unique and equally intriguing. Since 1998 his work gracefully combines distorted characters with softness and serenity, simultaneously overshadowing his detailed works with an underlying mood and message. With his satirical style of melancholy and wistfulness, ZED1 echoes a fabled dream that his worldwide audience and clients find strangely familiar and undoubtedly fascinating. The ability to strike a chord of pleasant wonder with clients and art lovers has only propelled his profession further into the eyes and interests of the freshest branches in contemporary art.

Dean “ZEUS” Colman

London artist Dean “Zeus” Colman (UK) has been drawing inspiration from urban culture to create dynamic, experimental compositions that have re-defined graffiti art since the 1980s, and have led to fine art collaboration projects with Prince Charles, Paul Oakenfold and the Beastie Boys to name a few. Zeus has continually pushed the boundaries of his niche artistry, taking the form out of its traditional setting and into new perspectives. His latest works represents an innovative fusion of 3D techniques and typography, fine art and sculpture, and reflect both his background on the streets and his formal training at Chelsea College of Art. The approach can be a clean and clever canvas, or mixed media crafted with extreme yet subtle detail, and glazed with a quirky wit that seems to stand at the foundation of all artworks as a solid, unforgiving instrument of identity.

Daniel “Besok” Doebner

Daniel Doebner (aka “Besok”) (DE) is an Amsterdam-based artist with such a musical eye for magical realism that it has made him one of the most melodious artists to blossom from the European urban art scene. His passion for soulful subjects in song can transition through different bodies, from birds to Dizzy Gillespie and dreamy divas. His series are inspired by emotions derived from deeply-rooted jazz, hip hop, rhythm and blues. Doebner is a master at playfully combining organic characters with elements of sound that often go overlooked. His combination of acrylic and aerosol drips create a vintage look that, when place on jute canvas, bring a sense of a rustic natural to his portraits on sepia-toned palates. The faces and instruments portrayed meet as if there is a dialog, a struggle, a romance, a desire. Background coloration are from stains of coffee grounds, carefully blended to give a vintage foundation beneath the subjects.
