Art Basel Exposed 2005


University of Miami’s student-run radio station WVUM-FM and Miami Art Lab present Art Basel Exposed 2005, featuring the work of Sam Brown of explodingdog.com, Tavare Hill a local Miami artist & Kelly Tunstall of San Francisco.

Sam Brown has become a popular name from his trademark stick figure art inspired by subjects and titles sent to him via email. On peak days, he receives almost 200 emails with suggested titles. From these titles he draws colorful, imaginative stick figures with quick, comedic wit.
Tavare Hill is well known in the local scene as a leader in the use of urban aesthetic. His works are a blend of lowbrow & outsider with a strong reference to urban life and childhood. Hill also teaches at Design and Architecture Senior High.

Kelly Tunstall is an established artist who’s collected on the world market. Her paintings stunning female form strongly resemble character drawings of the fashion industry of times past. Tunstall’s pixie-like women are highly polished and glamorous beauties.

There will also be a juried art show for local artists. Ten works will be selected by a jury that is comprised of Alfredo Triff of The University of Miami, John Bailly of The Honors College at F.I.U., Tavare Hill of D.A.S.H. and Erik Lopez of Miami Art Lab.

In conjunction with the art exhibition there will be live DJ music from DJ Sticky Rice (Spider Pussy), DJ Benton (WVUM), DJ Lolo (Sweat Records) & DJ Alejandro (Poplife).
