Art Basel Brings Walking Canvas' to Life
Art and fashion in Miami collide at Art Basel Miami Beach this year, as the Jewish Museum of Florida FIU presents Daniel Chimowitz: Walking Canvases, the first-ever museum show by the internationally renowned artist and fashion designer. Known for creating walking canvases of painted images on hand-sewn and upcycled clothing, Chimowitz combines fine art with the energy of street art and fashion. For the world premiere exhibition, Chimowitz has created all new works, never before seen, along with site-specific murals and installations.
The exhibition features seven murals by Chimowitz, 32 new fashion ensembles, two paintings by Chimowitz, two murals by Miami graffiti artist Freddy Aquino, and a selfie-booth by Miami artist Evo Love."I design to empower men and women to be warriors in their own right," said Daniel Chimowitz. "All fashion is about confidence. The more confident you are, the more willing you are to stand out and be original."
