ART BASEL WEEK, WYNWOOD, MIAMI
MORE "SUGAR JUNKIE" PICS
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
"SUGAR JUNKIE" was a 1977 Winnebego Motor Home that had been rescued off the scrap-heap, given a tune-up and adorned with murals, stickers, tags, drawings, paste-ups and more from artists around the globe.
We teamed up with our friends at www.pawnworksstickerclub.com to introduce SUGAR JUNKIE to the public in Miami, Florida 2010 during Art Basel Week.
With boombox cranked, we took SUGAR JUNKIE on the road in and around the Wynwood and South Beach areas of Miami crashing party after party with a vehicle that was made by the people for the people. Artists and fans hopped on and off for free rides and tours of murals going up around town.
Some local artists could been seen chasing SUGAR JUNKIE on foot to take a quick tag or slap on a sticker as we cruised by.
At last count we saw these artists and more represented in one form or another somewhere on SUGAR JUNKIE:
COST, ELIK, MISS BUGS, SPACE INVADER, REMED, VARIOUS & GOULD, AIKO, DAVID WALKER, D-FACE, SKEWVILLE, PERU ANA ANA PERU, COLLIN VAN DER SLUIJS, JOE BLACK, ELUS, SPQR, DAIN, LUDO, CASH4, CHRIS MENDOZA, UFO 907, GAIA, NET KRT, STINKFISH, THUBDERCUT, NOJ, VUDU, LEAS, DDOCK, 5003, CASH FOR YOUR WARHOL, CELSO, RUBY, JULIA, HOPE, PAWNWORKS, STEN & LEX, RAE, (and the lady pictured below)...
SUGAR JUNKIE was recently donated to a children's organization down in Miami and will be turned into a mobile art center full of supplies, books and creative youth....
