01. JOHNNY LADERER
Laderer’s connection to the South Florida region is very evident in his video work, sculptures, and installation projects. Laderer takes cues from tropical flora and fauna and juxtaposes these elements with the urban development.
03. EMMETT MOORE
One of the few artists in Miami working in design, Moore caught everyone’s attention when he was featured at Design Miami in 2014. Keep him on your radar because next spring He will be having a solo show as part of the Bass Museum’s bassX series.
02. NINA SUREL
Surel has been a part of the community for a while. Her ongoing self-portrait series is made from hand-painted photographs, heavily embellished with buttons, flowers, and fabric. Not to be missed is her first video project, which combines a flair for self-reflection and mythology.
One of Miami’s most sought-after artists, TYPOE works in a variety of media, but my favorite series are drawings made by igniting gun powder. His work is always dark, albeit whimsical.
05. CRISTINA LEI RODRIGUEZ
Rodriguez’s exploration of natural formations has led to some of the most interesting abstract functional sculptures and visually stunning wallpaper projects. At times organic, the works appear more polished, glamorous and lux than nature itself.
