Music For Imagination

Lemurian, aka Max Silva, is a Miami-based DJ who uses music as a tool to open minds and hearts. The ultimate goal of his music: to have people connect through the high frequencies of love, so that they can develop and advance any undertaking in their lives. To do this, he uses dreamlike instrumental sounds in his sets, with performances held as “ceremonies” mostly under the sun, where setting an intention is the main priority. Dreamy indeed. Here, he created a soundtrack that mirrors this musical philosophy:

As a Miami native and art world authority, José Carlos Diaz is regularly exposed to the city’s most prolific creatives. Diaz, now the Milton Fine Curator of Art at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, commutes between both cities and continues to follow Miami’s booming art scene. He’ll be the first to tell you it was nearly impossible to shortlist five “ones-to-watch” from such a vibrant community, but nonetheless, we took him to task. Here, Diaz’s list of Miami’s most desirable artists:

 

TYPOE

One of the city’s most sought-after artists, TYPOE works in a variety of media, but my favorite series are drawings made
by igniting gunpowder. His work is often dark, albeit whimsical. But he took a much brighter turn for his first solo museum exhibition recently at Faena in Buenos Aires, Argentina, who also have a location in Miami.

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. The Bass Museum of Art has given him a solo at their annex space, and he’s exhibited everywhere from the de la Cruz collection to New York’s Patrick Parrish Gallery.

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.

JOHNNY LADERER

Laderer’s connection to the South
Florida region is very evident in his
painting, photography, sculpture and
installation projects. Laderer takes
cues from tropical flora and fauna and
juxtaposes these elements with
urban detritus.

NINA SUREL

Surel has been a mainstay in the growing
Miami arts community. Her ongoing selfportrait
series is made from hand-painted
photographs, heavily embellished with
buttons, flowers, and fabric. Last year
she debuted her first video project, which
combined a flair of self-reflection
and mythology.
