JDK Boards Project designers Marin Horikawa and Greg Comollo had the chance to soak up Art Basel this past December. They went to be inspired, connect with artists, and hunt down possible collaborations. (Convincing them to trade wintry Vermont for the warmth of South Florida didn’t prove to be very difficult.) It was Marin’s second visit and Greg’s first.
The entire art world congregates in Miami for Art Basel—dealers, buyers, and artists, from great masters to acclaimed newcomers, in a remarkable array of mediums. That catalyzing mix creates a festival-like atmosphere, which—along with the weather—keeps people coming year after year.
