The UR1 festival promises to be one to the top shelf events during Art Basel Weekend 2012. With musical acts such Kanye West, Janes Addiction, Lou Reed and much more headlining the show. But also the much-anticipated work of Miami’s own Typoe will be revealed during this years UR1 festival. The anticipation comes in the form of suspense stemming from Typoe’s 2008 Art Base debut and whether he can match his blockbuster debut. Back in 2010 Typoe’s iconic sculpture ” Confetti Death” was plastered in much of the Art Basel related publications of 2010. All I have to say is “skull throwing up colors,” and I’m sure the image comes to your head. Yes if you didn’t know that infamous sculpture is that of Miami artist Typoe. Check out the UR1 Festival during Art Basel Weekend to see the revealing of Typoe’s most recent sculpture of extraordinary size.
Words form artist himself: During this years Art Basel Miami beach I will have a large public sculpture revealed during the UR1 festival in Bayfront Park. Musical acts as follows: KANYE WEST . LOU REED . SANTIGOLD . IGGY AZALEA . JANE’S ADDICTION . ANIMALCOLLECTIVE and many many more..
