The Fountain Art Fair Maimi

Ok, this is one of the installations at Fountain Art Fair...

The Fountain Art Fair in Miami has ways to go. I looked rather underdeveloped and scattered.

Looking more like an abandoned crack house during the 1980's Lower East Side in Manhattan. It tried too hard to be hip and gritty and separate itself from other the more sanitized and organized Art fairs. If the intention was to stand out, it was done the wrong way. The art was hard to see and quite easy to trample on.

The work of Nikki Johnson caught my eye.

A NYC Lower East Side resident with gritty, raw, in your face stylized photographs can be something to consider.
