Art Basel: Pop Artist Miguel Paredes & Ronnie Cutrone

Miguel Paredes, Miami based pop artist and New York native, will be exhibiting a new series of art with fellow artist, longtime friend and mentor, Ronnie Cutrone,  during Art Basel week, December 5-9.

The collaborative collection includes 5 paintings where Paredes has incorporated his style on Cutrone’s animated pieces of famed characters like Woody the Woodpecker and Felix the Cat.

The two have also joined forces to re-imagine Cutrone’s most prized series of works the “Supermodels Suite” by combining different styles such as Street, Pop, and Anime. The series was created in 1997 and features top models from the era such as Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Elle McPherson and Claudia Schiffer and will be on display in Miguel Paredes Gallery during Art Basel, priced at $10,000 and up.

The 6,000 square foot gallery in Miami’s Wynwood Arts district will be open for public viewings every day starting December 5 -December 9 from noon – 5 p.m. with special events nightly from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. each evening.
