Art Basel 2012: Basel, Switzerland

Art Basel 4 Art Basel 2012: Basel, Switzerland

The art world is abuzz fresh off the heels of Art Basel 2012 in Basel, Switzerland over the weekend. The famed international art show featured modern and contemporary works by more than 2,500 artists from 300 of the world’s top galleries. It is estimated that over 65,000 people attended this year’s exhibition but for those of us who missed out on a chance to attend, I was able to find a few images of some of the exhibitions.

    I’ve always wanted to go to this!!! Hopefully some day! And I LOVE “Revolutionary Kid (calf)”. Do you think we could commission Yinka to incorporate Remy & Sir into a piece?

      I think it’s worth a shot! Though, the piece would be substantially smaller and wider. ;-)
